The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Man- agement Agency (FEMA) and the Mississippi Emergency Manage- m.pn~. AgenCy (MEMA)'remind Mis- s=ss~ppi residents to begin their emergency preparations now. "As we continue the recovery from Hurricane Katnna, we need to be mindful of the lessons we've learned. Now is the time for individ- uals to take responsibility for being prepared for the next hurricane season," said Dennis Kizziah, act- ing director for FEMA's Mississippi Transitional Recovery Office. "With all the information and assistance that is readily available, there really is no substitute for being aware and getting yourself and your family ready, especially now in the days before hurricane season begins," said Mike Wom- 8ck, director of MEMA. FEMA and MEMA recommend taking the following steps to pre- pare for hurricane season: Develop a family disaster plan and know how to stay safe in a hur- ricane. Discuss what your family should do when a hurricane comes ashore and where you might go in an evacuation - to a shelter, hotel or to stay with family or friends. Don't forget about pets. Some shel- ters will not permit them, so plan in advance what to do with them. * Know and review your evacua- tion mutes. Keep a detailed map 6f Mississippi as well as a map of evacuation routes in your car. . Develop a family communica- tion plan. Identify a friend or relative in another state or city to serve as a point of contact in case family members are separated. Put together a disaster kit and store it in a portable container in case of evacuation. The kit should include: At least a three-day supply of food and bottled water for each family member; A manual can opener; Battery-powered radio and flashlights with extra batteries; First aid kit including family members' medications; Hygiene and personal care items; Emergency contact list and phone numbers; Pet supplies; Copies of important papers including insurance policies and bank account information; Emergency cash or credit card in the case of an evacuation with lit- tle notice. Protect your home and property: Purchase flood insurance for both your home and its contents as well as property insurance against strong winds. Renters can also pur- chase flood insurance for their apartment's contents. Review your insurance coverage with your insur- ance agent, and update your cover- age amounts. Although flood insur- ance may be purchased throughout the year, remember there is a 30- day waiting penod before coverage begins. Hurricane straps and shutters are generally cost-effective mea- sures.
