Hurricane prep for families: activities, supplies and safety

Hurricane prep for families: activities, supplies and safety

When hurricanes threaten South Florida, parents should plan ahead to prepare their children for the storm and the no-school days that might follow.

If they haven’t already, parents should have a conversation with their children about the family hurricane plan. Let the kids ask questions and discuss different scenarios to relieve their fears.

The whole family can get involved in hurricane preparations. Download a list of what you need in a hurricane preparation kit, including water, flashlights, batteries, medication, pet food and more. Be sure to include a cell phone charger, especially if you have a solar-powered model.
