Hurricane season can be a trying time. We’ve put together some handy tips to ensure you and your family are prepared in the event Southwest Florida is threatened by a hurricane or major storm.
Include your pets.
Pets are members of the family. Fewer shelters and hotels allow them. Have a cage or carrier, licenses and immunization records with you. Know if you’re boarding or taking your pet and be ready in advance of mandatory evacuation.
Protect important info.
Back up all your vital records, emails and programs to a portable hard drive or the cloud so if you have to leave your home, you have that data with you or can access it remotely.
Secure your boat.
Get it out of the water or further inland in case a storm is coming. Even in a mild storm, the water in canals, rivers and bays can toss the biggest boats around.
Hurricanes wreak havoc and are unpredictable. But planning will minimize the stress, anxiety, discomfort, hassle and suffering that major storms generate.
