June 1, marks the start of the hurricane season and it runs through to the month of November. It is very important that preparations be made in the event we do experience a hurricane. Hurricane preparations are any activity that is geared towards reducing the impacts or getting people at a state of readiness in the event a hurricane do impact an area. Preparations can be Structural or non structural. The more prepared you are the better you are to deal with disaster. Preparation helps to reduce the recovery time as well.
