Hurricane season preparation tips
Written by Miami Today on June 1, 2018
To mark the start of the 2018 hurricane season, the City of Miami encourages all residents and businesses to check their disaster kits, review their hurricane plans and remain alert to new information and instruction throughout this hurricane season.
Specifically, residents are urged to: Make sure that emergency equipment, such as hurricane shutters and battery-powered radios, are in good working order; ensure sufficient emergency supplies (e.g., non-perishable food and water) are on hand for each person in the home to last for at least three days; obtain and store materials necessary to properly secure your home; secure yard and construction debris so they do not pose a hazard during a storm; take tree trimmings to a local trash and recycling center; and find out if you live in an evacuation zone.
As with all weather events, if a storm is approaching residents should monitor local news for updates.
