BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – With the 2013 Hurricane Season well under way, it’s very important for Brevard County residents to “Make a Plan, Build a Kit and Stay Informed.”
Preparing a personal plan of action, stocking up on supplies like water and fresh batteries and staying tuned in to SpaceCoastDaily.com reports on tropical storm systems as they form in the Atlantic can help residents weather an emergency during the hurricane season, which started June 1 and goes through Nov. 30.
“It’s recommended residents stock up with various storm supplies that includes fresh batteries, flashlights, food and water for 72 hours and a weather radio,” said Brevard County Emergency Management Director Kimberly Prosser.
