Hurricane Florence is projected to make landfall in the Carolinas. Now is a good time to download the FEMA app up for the latest updates not just for Hurricane Florence but for all disaster preparedness and response events. It will provide you with the most up-to-date information firsthand.
The app can be found in Google Play or the Apple App Store. The information is in English and Spanish. For more information, visit www.fema.gov.
For those in the Carolinas, listen to local authorities. We understand that some people cannot evacuate for different reasons. However, if at all possible, please do not put first responders in harm’s way because you choose not to evacuate. For those not in the Carolinas, this is as good as time as any to begin to prepare for wildland fires, hurricanes and the upcoming winter season.
