With the threat of Hurricane Irma approaching, it is critical that everyone prepares themselves and their loved ones for damage. As of today, the category 5 storm is racing at 175 MPH with reports of it being the “strongest Atlantic hurricane in 10 years.” If you’re in the projected path (and we at ECATTS just may be), it’s time to get ready.
Here are a few reminders of how to plan and also what not to do:
- Get your supplies:
- Non-perishable foods
- Batteries & flashlights
- Battery powered radio
- Baby items (if applicable)
- Food, diapers, formula, wipes, medications if needed, extra clothing
- Pet supplies
- Food, medicine, extra cage, leash, collars & tags, medical records
- First Aid kit
- Phone numbers and medical contacts
- Paper products (toilet paper & towels)
- Pack bags with important records & information if you need to leave your home quickly
2. Refill prescription medications
3. Make an evacuation plan (if you have any pets, make sure to find hotels that will accept them beforehand)
Here’s link to read more about what to include in your supply kit: https://weather.com/safety/hurricane/news/things-to-get-during-hurricane-emergency-supply-run#/1
- DON’T tape the windows – it does almost no good
- DON’T run a generator indoors – carbon monoxide emissions are deadly
- DON’T use a charcoal or gas grill indoors – carbon monoxide and fire risks are too great
- DON’T walk in flooded waters – alligators, snakes, downed power lines and sewage could be in the water
- DON’T stay after an evacuation is ordered – rescuers may not come in the height of the storm
- DON’T forget about your pets – they are part of your family too
Stay safe out there!
Wishing all of our clients and friends a Happy Labor Day Weekend! Have fun and stay safe with your celebrations.
Today marks the first solar eclipse of the sun visible to the contiguous U.S. in more than three decades!
If you’re planning on witnessing this astronomical phenomenon, be sure to do it safely. Protect your eyes with proper eyewear (and no, regular sunglasses won’t cut it). Make sure the viewing glasses you use are labeled with the proper code: ISO 12312-2.
