Hurricane Preparedness Week is a time to prepare for a potential land-fall tropical storm or hurricane. If you live in an area prone to these types of storms or even areas threatened by dangerous flooding or destructive winds, it's important to take this time to prepare for a dangerous weather event.
The NORC Emergency Preparedness page provides resources for victims, their families and care providers in preparing for or in the aftermath of an emergency event. Plus, get an Emergency Preparedness Kit from the Consumer Voice store - including a flashlight, NORC Tip Sheets - Being Prepared! Things Ombudsmen Should Do Before, During and After an Emergency; Smart Phone Apps; and Emergency Management Dictionary and Translations; and CMS Emergency Preparedness Checklist.
