The 2019 Atlantic hurricane season officially begins on June 1 and ends on November 30. It is never too early to prepare and to be Hurricane Ready.
Have a plan, prepare ahead
This includes knowing your evacuation plan, removing bulky debris from outside of your home, trimming your trees so they do not brush up on power lines, and updating your hurricane kit.
For abundant resources, including evacuation routes, information on the emergency and evacuation assistance program, disaster preparedness for people with disabilities, and a resident hurricane kit, please refer to the Hurricane and Flood Information section of the Town website: Hurricane and Flood Information
