Hurricane preparation time is now! Don't get caught short again this year.

June 1st is nearing and many of us are still waiting for our insurance carrier to pay for Hurricane Irma. To this date the carrier has only paid a very small portion of my claim and I have spoken to hundreds of residents that are in the same position Items that you must have and store in a safe place. They are:

1) Bottled water

2) Flash light

3) Batteries

4) Fill all prescriptions

5) Chemicals to disinfect living area

6) First aid kit, If possible, a large kit.

7) If you are going to use a portable generator in case of extended power outage. Then plan a location where it is away from the house, install carbon monoxide detectors in all living quarters. Battery operated models.

8) Area where generator will be placed, make sure it can be locked down where it doesn’t grow feet and walk away.

9) Cell phones and chargers, along with backup battery packs. (Amazon) Jockey brand.

10) Family escape plan with a location where everyone will meet in case of separation doing a catastrophe.

11) Evacuation Plan, if you don't leave at least 24 hours prior to landfall, be ready to have enough gas to make it to a safe place. Prior to Hurricane Irma, residents ran out of gas on the turnpike and worse was where it takes 3 to 4 hours to drive to Orlando, it took people over 12 hours. Prepare with time.

12) Pets, they need food and water in the amount and days as their owners
