• Discuss the type of hazards that could affect
your family. Know your home’s vulnerability to storm surge, flooding and wind.
• Locate a safe room or the safest areas in your home for each hurricane
hazard. In certain circumstances the safest areas may not be your
home but within your community.
• Strengthen the exterior of your house so wind and debris do not tear large
openings in it. You can do this by protecting and reinforcing these five
critical areas: roof, straps, shutters, doors, windows and garage doors.
• Determine escape routes from your home and places to meet.
• Have an out-of-state friend as a family contact, so all your family
