2018 hurricane season
(June 1-November 30)
There are a number of disturbances in the Atlantic Ocean currently being tracked by the National Hurricane Center.
Preparation is the key to successfully getting through a severe storm.
It is important to remember that the physical safety of your customers, their families and their pets is paramount and should always be the number one priority. Putting together a storm kit is a great step.
The kit will ideally include:
As storms approach, it is recommended to bring in or secure patio furniture so the risk of damage, to the furniture itself or anything it might be blown into during the storm, is reduced.
Additionally, ensuring each vehicle has a full tank of gas is suggested as lengthy power outages will impact the ability to secure fuel.
Maintaining extra fuel for gas grills or generators is also encouraged, but it is critical to ensure the fuel is kept in an appropriate safety container and is properly stored to minimize the risk of fire.
