As hurricane season approaches, ensuring you're prepared for potential storms becomes crucial. At PreFix, we prioritize your safety and the protection of your home. Here’s a comprehensive guide to help you stay safe and minimize damage during hurricane season.

Evacuation Planning Steps

When preparing for a hurricane, it’s essential to have a clear plan in place:

  • Plan Ahead: Create a detailed evacuation plan that includes knowing your routes and compiling a list of essential items to take with you.
  • Set a Destination: Determine where you will evacuate to—a family member’s home, a shelter, or another safe location.
  • Prepare a Hurricane Kit: Pack a hurricane kit with necessities such as water, non-perishable food, medications, and crucial documents.

Important Tips for Evacuation

Documenting your home and belongings before evacuating is vital:

  • Document Your Home: Take comprehensive photos of both the interior and exterior of your home. This documentation will be invaluable when filing insurance claims after a storm.
  • Take Essential Documents: Remember to gather important documents like social security cards, birth certificates, marriage certificates, and passports.
