The flowers are blooming, the air is thick with humidity and pollen and school is just about to be out for the summer, you know what that means??? Well for us here along the Gulf Coast, it means it’s time to start thinking about hurricane season! Hurricane Season runs from June 1 through November 30, 2018, with the height of the season falling around the middle of September. Even though our minds are more focused on barbecues and beach trips, it is best to go ahead and create a plan so that you are fully prepared if Mother Nature turns her fury our way. If you aren’t sure of where to begin, there are lots of resources out there to help you find your way. A great place to start is Ready.gov and RedCross.org. These sites will help you create a supply list, communication plans and even design an evacuation plan should it be necessary. If you own a business, you can contact SERVPRO of Southwest Mobile to create an Emergency Ready Profile. This is a free service that compiles vital emergency information, photographs of crucial shutoffs, and contacts into an easily accessible app form. Residential customers, you can create your own ERP by visiting clicking here. Having a plan in place can help you minimize damage and recovery times!
