Preparedness Tip 1: Make a Plan
Get your entire family involved in the emergency planning process. Discuss why you need to prepare for a disaster and the types of disasters most likely to occur to your home and in our geographic region. Plan to share responsibilities and work together as a team. Disaster preparedness planning can be educational, fun and lifesaving.
Preparedness Tip 2: Get a Kit
A disaster supplies kit is simply a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency. Make sure you and your family have enough emergency food and water to see you through at least 72 hours.
Preparedness Tip 3: Prepare an Evacuation Plan
Protecting our precious families is paramount during a disaster. Planning an emergency evacuation plan before a storm strikes can help ensure their safety. Fort Bend County is a pass-through county and does not evacuate for hurricanes. However, if you choose to leave the area, officials recommend taking these strategic steps to be prepared.
Preparedness Tip 4: Stay Tuned In & Stay Ahead of the Storms
As you prepare for hurricane season, it's important to be aware of weather developments. Make time every day to watch, listen or read local forecast reports. Missouri City has a variety of citizen communications available to keep residents up-to-date.
