Hurricane Awareness Tips

Plan and Take Action

Everyone needs to be prepared for the unexpected. Your friends and family may not be together when disaster strikes. How will you find each other? Will you know if your children or parents are safe? You may have to evacuate or be confined to your home. What will you do if water, gas, electricity or phone services are shut off?

Put together a basic disaster supplies kit and consider storage locations for different situations. Help community members do the same.

Develop and document plans for your specific risks.

  • Protect yourself and family with a Family Emergency Plan
  • Be sure to plan for locations away from home.
  • Business owners and site locations should create Workplace Plans
  • Make sure schools and daycares have School Emergency Plans
  • Pet owners should have plans to care for their animals
  • When traveling, always notify family members of your stops in case there is an emergency

In Case Of Evacuation

  • Review the FEMA Evacuation Guidelines to allow for enough time to pack and inform friends and family if you need to leave your home. FOLLOW instructions issued by local officials. Leave immediately if ordered!
  • Consider your protection options to decide whether to stay or evacuate your home if you are not ordered to evacuate.

When waiting out a storm be careful,the danger may not be over yet..

Be alert for:

  • Tornadoes - they are often spawned by hurricanes.
  • The calm "eye" of the storm - it may seem like the storm is over, but after the eye passes, the winds will change direction and quickly return to hurricane force
  • Wait until an area is declared safe before returning home.

Preparing kids for their Tricks and Treats

  • Make sure older kids go out with friends. Younger children should be accompanied by an adult.
  • Set a time limit for children to trick-or-treat. Together, map out a safe route so you know where they'll be. Remind them not to take shortcuts through backyards, alleys or playing fields.
  • Remind kids not to enter a strange house or car.
  • Try to get kids to trick-or-trick while it is still light out. If it is dark, make sure the children are carrying flashlights that work.
  • Eating the Treats

  • Kids need to know not to eat their treats until they get home. One way to keep trick-or-treaters from digging in while they're still out is to feed them a meal or substantial snack beforehand.
  • Check out all treats at home in a well lighted place.
  • What to eat? Only unopened candies and other treats that are in original wrappers. Don't forget to inspect fruit and homemade goodies for anything suspicious. By all means, remind kids not to eat everything at once or they'll be feeling ghoulish for a while.
  • "Unhaunting" Your house and Neighborhood

  • Welcome trick-or-treaters at home by turning on your exterior lights.
  • Remove objects from your yard that might present a hazard to visitors.
  • Drive slowly all evening-you never know if trick-or-treaters may suddenly cross your path.
  • Report any suspicious or criminal activity to the Mission Police Department.
