Hurricane Preparedness

Hurricane Preparedness

With Hurricane season quickly approaching, it is never too early to start collecting information and

 supplies in preparation of storm. Flooding, power outages, sewer backups, internet disruptions and the like are common during and after these massive storms. Make sure to gather needed supplies for everyone in your home (including pets) at least three days

 before a storm. In addition, keep important documents in a safe and dry place, including password-protected digital copies. Staying informed with real time unbiased information on weather, creek levels and flood maps. Here are the sites I’ve found to be very

 informative during any major storm.

Mike’s Weather Page:

 Incredible collection of current weather and predictions.

Harris County Flood Warning System:

 Track the creek levels and potential flooding.

Montgomery County Flood Plains:

 Know the areas that could be at risk.

For

 those that want to take on an expanded role in community emergency preparedness, we recommend becoming a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) volunteer.

Managed by FEMA, the CERT Program trains ordinary citizens in how to help

 themselves and their neighbors in the event of disasters. In addition, because the training that CERT Volunteers undergo, they are often called upon to assist in organized disaster response as well. CERT training is provided free-of-charge. The CERT website

 (www.CERTinTheWoodlands.com)

serves as a central source of information about upcoming activities that

 require CERT-trained volunteers. In addition to coordinating CERT training in The Woodlands, the CERT Program guides CERT-trained members to an array of additional training and volunteer opportunities.
