Be Informed. Be Prepared. Be Safe.
It is that time of year again when the weather becomes cooler and we are more at risk for hurricanes and other extreme weather conditions.
Below is some helpful information from our Department of Health with some important ideas on how to be prepared in the case of an emergency.
Additional Items: If you use eyeglass, hearing aids and hearing aid batteries, wheelchair batteries or oxygen, be sure you always have extras in your kit.
