Prepare for severe weather

Prepare for severe weather

The Office of Emergency Preparedness and YNHHS delivery network emergency managers remind staff to prepare for severe weather, particularly during hurricane season, June 1 - Nov. 30. Be sure you have emergency kits at home and in your car with items such as non-perishable food, bottled water, batteries and medications, along with pet supplies. Have a communications plan for your family in case you are separated during a disaster, and a plan to ensure your family is taken care of in case the disaster strikes while you are at work. Visit and to sign up for state and local governmental disaster alerts and for more emergency-preparedness information and tools. You can also download apps for local weather/media stations, Code Red Mobile Alert and the American Red Cross.
