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.

Communauté boîte à outils de la norme NFPA, Soit prêt! Préparer votre communauté pour une catastrophe, 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.
