Steps for a Safe 2010 Hurricane Season

— CARLOS BARRIA/Reuters/Corbis

Starting June 1, Floridians face another hurricane season.   Official predictions suggest that this season could be as challenging as the difficult 2005 hurricane season, or even the disastrous, history-making 2004 season.

By now, no Floridian should need encouragement to get ready, but what to do?  To help Floridians 50+ be prepared, AARP Florida offers the following “Preparedness Principles.”  Follow these steps to get ready for whatever comes our way:

  • Review your insurance policy.
  • Defend your home against hurricane winds.
  • Prepare hurricane evacuation and return kits.
  • Evacuate – the smart way.
  • Plan what to do with pets.
  • Consider an electrical generator for emergency power.  
  • Document your home and possessions.

To learn more about each of these important principles, AARP Florida offers a series of stories.
