Hurricane Danny: Are You Prepared?

Copy of Sink or Swim?Seminole County Office of Emergency Management and first responders are preparing for the potential impacts of Hurricane Danny.

This weekend, you may consider preparing your home and devising a plan in the event Hurricane Danny makes landfall in Central Florida.

For more information, please contact the Seminole County Office of Emergency Management at 407-665-5102.

 

Here are a few steps to make sure you’re ready:

  • Trim trees and shrubbery, make sure any weak or dead limbs are removed.
  • Clear loose and clogged rain gutters and downspouts.
  • Prepare to evacuate if you live in a flood zone. Floods are the #1 natural disaster in the USA.
  • Persons with medical needs should register with the Office of Emergency Management if planning to go to a Special Needs shelter, or call 407-665-5102.
  • Make a list all medications and medical information.
  • Review insurance policies, take photos of your home, and make household inventory (include receipts, serial numbers, and purchase dates). Place these papers in a water proof container.
  • Restock your Family Emergency Disaster Kit, and view FEMA’s checklist here.
  • Purchase electric weather radio with a battery back-up, or a portable radio.
  • Consider signing up for one of the electronic text notification systems provided by Nextdoor, or the Office of Emergency Management.
