Hurricane Irma – A safety notice for our members

Posted by admin

We haven't had a major hurricane in about 12 years, but that is no reason to let our guards down. Hurricane Irma has achieved Category 5 status with winds at 175 mph. While it's still uncertain whether we will be hit, it's important to start making preparations NOW.

Make sure to buy plenty of drinking water, canned/non-perishable foods, and fill your car's gas tank. If your house needs shutters, make sure you have them ready to go up later this week. Also, make sure you have a safety plan in case your windows break (get in a room with no windows and put a mattress over you to protect you from debris).
Stay safe, everyone!

To stay up-to-date on the storm's path, here is the website for the National Hurricane Center.
