      The Atlantic basin hurricane season begins June 1. Getting prepared for any type of disaster is a simple matter and it starts with knowing what you will need to do. It’s the first step to keeping yourself and your family safe.
       
      If a disaster were to hit today, would you be ready? Could you, your family, and property survive? Are you prepared? What would you do? Where would you go? These are the basic questions everyone is faced with when a flood, hurricane, or any other disaster heads our way.
