Media and Community Education Ideas

  • Publish a special section in your local newspaper with emergency information on hurricanes. Localize the information by printing the phone number of local emergency services offices, the American Red Cross chapter, and the nearest hospitals.

  • Provide hurricane tracking charts to local schools.

  • Work with local emergency services and American Red Cross http://www.redcross.org/ officials to prepare special reports to people with mobility impairments on what to do if an evacuation is ordered.

  • At the beginning of each hurricane season, encourage the emergency response organizations to review community hurricane disaster plans.

  • Publicize and promote a hurricane awareness week.

  • Stage a simulated evacuation to show your community what can happen.

  • Periodically inform your community of local public warning systems.

  • Publish emergency evacuation routes.
