How to Prepare for Hurricane Season

It is important to do hurricane preparation before the season begins, as hurricanes can come on quickly and will have little warning. So being prepared is key to protecting your home and your family. 

  • Sign up for local notification services that report storm alerts

  • Have an emergency kit ready with necessities like enough water and non-perishable food for a few days, first-aid items, and sanitation supplies

  • Invest in a battery-powered radio and a good flashlight

  • Trim tree branches that could break off and damage the home

  • Place important documents in a waterproof container

  • Stock up on cash in case of power outages at ATMs

  • Cover windows with hurricane shutters or wood

  • Bring in outdoor furniture or secure it with ropes or tarps

  • Review Your Florida Home Insurance Policy
