- Don’t take the threat lightly – as the old saying goes: it’s better to be safe than sorry.
- Preparing for a hurricane is strenuous work. It’s best to plan ahead and do a little bit at a time.
- When planning and executing your plan, the details matter.
- The importance and the value of carrying insurance suddenly becomes obvious.
- Understandably, people value insurance more when there is a direct threat to their property or livelihood.
- Often times people wait until the last moment to get their insurance in order.
- During the storm we become more friendly with our neighbors. – Perhaps we should do this more when there is no threat of a storm.
- Life is short; count your blessings everyday…
- Support and pray for your neighbors; especially those across the seas
- It pays to be prepared during hurricane season:
- Keep your home well maintained. – There are several things that I put off which made our home more vulnerable and susceptible to damage.
- Have the right tools on hand.
- Have extra parts on hand.
- Keep everything lubricated and serviced ahead of time.
- Have your detailed plans in place and reviewed as a family and/or as an organization at the start of the season, before there is a threat.
- Set clear expectations for everybody
- Stock up on non-perishable food, water and other items.
- Try to remain calm
- Try not to sit in front of the TV watching the channel that reports on the storm all day long! This tends to get us hyped up – unnecessarily.
- We can get all the information we need about the storm from the National Hurricane Center in 5 to 10 minute intervals. They provide a schedule of updates and we have access to this on the Internet as well as on the TV.
