Are you ready?

Hurricane iconWhen every second counts, be prepared!

Hurricane season is June 1 through November 30. But, here in Louisiana, flash floods, tornadoes and other severe weather events can happen year-round. If you don’t already have a game plan for yourself and your family, it’s time to make one!


Preparing for Your Medical Needs

It’s important that you plan for your medical needs before a disaster strikes. Talk to your doctor about how to take care of your medical needs during and after an emergency.

Make sure your medical care instructions are written down.  Include information about any allergies or dietary restrictions you have, and instructions for any medical equipment you may need to bring with you. If you have to evacuate, remember to take this information with you.

We’re here to help!

Making Your Emergency Preparedness Plan

Your plan should include:

  • An emergency kit that is packed and ready to take anywhere.
  • A plan for what to do and where to go if you must evacuate your home.
  • A plan for where to meet if your family becomes separated.
  • A plan for how you will get emergency alerts and warnings.

Family members with disabilities, babies, older adults, and pets may need a special plan. Make sure you have a plan for everyone!
