A single storm can cause more than just dollars in damages. It can cost human lives. We know from experience that people are more likely to be safer and have the ability to recover more quickly when they are properly prepared.
Have you put together a disaster preparedness kit and developed a plan to keep your family safe? Is your insurance coverage adequate? Those living near the coast should be familiar with the applicable evacuation routes. Everyone needs to take personal responsibility for yourself, your family and your pets. By making proper preparations, you will allow the first responders to focus on helping the most vulnerable residents.
I have posted several important links below for hurricane / Disaster Preparedness information from FEMA, Miami-Dade County, Cutler Bay, Pinecrest and Palmetto Bay in one location for you. There is also information on how to register with Miami-Dade Alerts, a wireless emergency alerting system.
