Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How can I reduce the risk of damage to my home during a hurricane?
A. One of the most effective ways to protect your home from damage during storms, trim trees and shrubbery. It is also important to remove any debris or loose items in your yard. Hurricane winds can pick up anything unsecured, creating damage to property when the debris hits.

Q. I live in a mobile home with tie-downs. Do I still need to evacuate when a hurricane warning is issued?
A. Yes. Most tie-downs will only keep the floor of your mobile home partially secured to the ground. The walls and roof may still blow away.

Q. How can I prepare my family for possible terrorist attacks?
A. You can prepare to deal with a terrorist incident by adapting many of the same techniques used to prepare for other crises.
