Hurricane Strong

Atlantic Hurricane Season begins June 1st and ends November 30th.

The Town has developed comprehensive plans to respond effectively to disasters, including strategies to expedite and ease our recovery efforts by establishing an emergency reserve account to fund these activities and by amending our Land Management Ordinance to facilitate a rapid re-establishment of our community following a hurricane or other disaster.

In the event of a potential or actual storm strike, you play a key role in a successful pre- and post-disaster scenario. Your Town wants you to be prepared for whatever comes our way. The best way to protect your family from the effects of a disaster is to have a disaster plan and develop an emergency kit. Develop your kit and make plans now!
