MAKE A PLAN
Due to the high frequency of hurricanes in Dare County, residents should not only have an emergency plan for disasters that may occur without warning but a plan for hurricane evacuations. Evacuation plans should include what route you will take, what vehicles you will use, and where you will stay. While preparing your family's emergency plan, don't forget to make a plan for your pets.
|Do you have a plan in place if communication lines and/or cell phone towers fail? When cell networks are overloaded, texts and social media posts are more likely to make it through. Designate a meeting area and a backup meeting location for your family. Make plans to check-in with a designated family member or friend who lives in a different area. When local networks are jammed, often times long-distance calls will go through.
