Florida Residents - OK, you stocked up on batteries, water, non perishable food items and other hurricane supplies.  What else do you need to prepare for a hurricane, tornado, natural disaster or other emergency?  The answer, a good first aid is essential.  Your hurricane first aid kit should to be larger than the first aid kit you keep in the trunk of your car or on your boat.  Listed below are some of the items you should have in your hurricane first aid kit.

Florida Hurricane Preparation - First Aid Training, Emergency Medical Services, FEMA and the Red Cross do a very good job helping people after the hurricane, earthquake, flood, tornado or other such disaster.  What we do is different.  Our philosophy is that the better prepared you are before the event the less you should need to rely on others after the disaster.  We help businesses, schools, universities, restaurants and clubs, hotels and resorts, marinas, homeowners and condominium associations, assisted living facilities, non profit organizations and other businesses prepare before the storm is near or disaster happens.   We like to consider our proactive approach “Safety Insurance.”  Let us help you with your Hurricane Preparedness. 

Tropical Storms vs. Hurricanes

The National Hurricane Center explains that names are only given to tropical storms that have sustained wind speeds higher than 39 mph. These names will stay with the storm as it reaches hurricane strength (maximum sustained winds of 74 mph or higher). This means Tropical Storm Debby, for example, will become Hurricane Debby if it reaches maturity.

The Atlantic Hurricane season, which officially begins June 1st, peaks September 10th and ends November 30th.
