Hurricane season is here – make a plan now for your family!

The 2017 Hurricane Season starts June 1, 2017. As Coast Guard personnel, we all have a responsibility to lead by example. Are you prepared? Does your family know what to do? Coast Guard men and women confident their loved ones and their property are safe and secure are better prepared to perform their missions when disaster strikes. Make sure you have a plan in place for when you are not able to be home.


To Coast Guard members and families in Hurricane Matthew path

As Coast Guard members we are always thinking about the public when a hurricane is pushing down on us. But we also need to make sure we are ready as well. Evacuate your family as necessary in accordance with evacuation orders from authorities, and make sure to inform your chain of command. Evacuations orders do not apply to uniformed personnel in the same way as they do for your families. You may be told to stay in the event you are deemed necessary for hurricane response efforts. Make sure you have a plan in place for where your family will go (with or without you) and follow through with the plan.
