HURRICANE PREPARATION TIPS

  • The hurricane season is now underway, and forecasters are warning of possible ferocious storms again this year.

  • The East Northport Fire Department urges all residents to prepare now, just in case.

  • The American Red Cross urges you to assemble a Disaster Supplies Kit including the following items:

  • First aid kit with essential medications

  • Canned food and a manual can opener

  • At least 3 gallons of water per household member

  • Protective clothing, rainwear and bedding or sleeping bags

  • Battery powered radio, flashlight and extra batteries

  • Special items for infants, elderly or disabled family members

  • Written instructions on how to turn off electricity, gas and water if authorities advise you to do so. (Remember, you will need a professional to turn them back on).

  • Prepare a hurricane evacuation route, if authorities order you to evacuate
