Hello CERT members,
Guess what, the hurricane season is almost upon us again. The last
few years have been mild, nothing like some of the past years where we were hit with some ferocious storms. Still
and all, one never knows what this season hold in store for us.
The worst thing that could happen is for us, as CERT members, to become complacent
and not prepare for the worst. As the saying goes, hope for the best but prepare for the worst.
Make sure that the supplies in your backpack have been replenished, those of us
that have been to the numerous trainings have had to use some of the supplies that were in our backpacks. I will be
scheduling a get together to re-fill our supplies.
The Addison Reserve web site has a terrific section on hurricane preparedness. I
strongly suggest that we all famileiaris ourselves with it. There is a link to it in the MPOA/General Info area.
There are sections on:
Designated hurricane shelters for Addison Reserve
Hurricane Check List
What to Buy List
Wackenhut Hurricane Preparedness
