Should I Evacuate?
In 2011 Hurricane Irene prompted Nassau County to ORDER the evacuation of residents living in South Freeport and again in 2012 for Super Storm Sandy. Those who did not evacuate, as ordered, placed themselves, family and rescuers in grave danger.
Most people that didn’t evacuate for Sandy feared for their lives and will never disregard an Evacuation Order again.
If you are asked to evacuate, you should do so without delay. The two Evacuation Routes for Freeport that have been established by Nassau County Emergency Management are Northbound via Grand Ave in Baldwin and the Meadowbrook Parkway. However with the residents of the barrier islands using the same evacuation routes, these roadways will be very congested with traffic. That means it is important for you and your family to have an EVACUATION PLAN to get to a safe shelter as quickly as possible. You should also have a PLAN if you don’t have time to evacuate and need to shelter in place. This plan should make you as safe as possible in your home. Using modifications to strengthen your home against storms and stocking medical, food, and water supplies are essential recommendations to include in your Disaster Prevention Plan. The suggestions provided here are guidelines that should not outweigh your common sense.
