Keep Your Eyes on the Sky this Hurricane Season

Do you have a plan in place?

As storms approach this hurricane season, make sure you and your family are prepared for anything Mother Nature throws your way.

Have a family communications plan in place.

Designate someone out of the area as a central contact, and make certain that all family members know whom to contact if they become separated. Most important, practice your emergency plan in advance.

Be sure you have a "Hurricane Phone."

It's a good idea to have a wireless phone on hand that is not dependent on electricity in case of a power outage. Cordless landline telephones usually have receivers that are electrically charged, so they won't work if you lose your power.

Program all of your emergency contact numbers and email addresses into your mobile phone.

Numbers should include the police department, fire station and hospital, as well as your family members.

Keep your wireless phone batteries charged at all times.

Have an alternative plan to recharge your battery in case of a power outage, such as charging your wireless device by using your car charger or having extra mobile phone batteries or disposable mobile phone batteries on hand.

Keep your wireless phone dry.

The biggest threat to your device during a hurricane is water, so keep your equipment safe from the elements by storing it in a baggie or some other type of protective covering
