Were you prepared for Superstorm Sandy?
Freeport, a coastal community, is highly susceptible to Hurricanes, Nor’easters (storms that specifically affect the east coast), and strong winter storms. The severe damage from the impact of strong winds, storm surges, floods, tornados, and riptides present several potential risks to your personal property and life. Being prepared for natural or man-made disasters that can strike without warning is crucial. Along with your planning ahead, monitoring weather conditions and sending out the appropriate mass notifications to keep Freeport residents safe and informed is the responsibility of Freeport’s Emergency Management Team.
Disasters can strike quickly and without warning, forcing you to evacuate your neighborhood, workplace, school, or home. If you were confined to any of these places, what would you do if your basic services— water, gas, electricity or telephones—were cut off? Although local officials and relief workers will be readily available, they may not be able to reach everyone right away. When it comes to being prepared before a disaster crisis hits, all residents are encouraged to have a Family Emergency Plan and Disaster Supply Kit available for immediate use. Your kit should have enough supplies to last at least 5 to 7 days for each family member
Everyone shares a responsibility to prevent casualties and minimize damage.
This guide contains necessary information regarding actions that should be taken during an emergency to protect your family, property and yourself. The first step in this process is getting the information to get prepared. Disaster Preparedness includes:
- Developing a Family Plan
- Creating a Disaster Supply Kit
- Having a Place to go
- Securing your Home
- Having a Pet Plan
- Reviewing Online Vulnerability Information
