Get ready during Hurricane Preparedness Week


Por Lisa Braxton

National Hurricane Preparedness Week is underway and continues through Saturday, Mayo 30º. The purpose is to spread awareness of the dangers and hazards of hurricanes and ensure that every family has a disaster plan, every business has a disaster checklist, and everyone gets out of the path of a hurricane safely.

NFPA’s community toolkit, Get Ready! Preparing Your Community for a Disaster, a comprehensive guide for fire departments to give firefighters and other first responders the tools they need to help local residents prepare for disaster before disaster strikes, includes a fact sheet on hurricane preparedness in English and Spanish. The fact sheet helps residents prepare before, during, and after a hurricane.

The Get Ready toolkit is a great resource on other disasters and includes fact sheets on blackouts, earthquakes, floods, landslides, and nuclear accidents. These and others are available in English and Spanish.
