Get Ready for Hurricane Season

May 1 kicks off Hurricane Preparedness Week. Sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) before the June 1 start of the Atlantic hurricane season, the week raises awareness of the hazards posed by hurricanes.

Even if you don’t live along an ocean coast, rain, wind, flooding and tornadoes could still impact you after a hurricane makes landfall.

If you do live in a coastal area, you may have to evacuate quickly. For Child Care Providers, please review your Emergency Preparedness Plan . Also, Learn your evacuation routes, practice with your child care staff and the children you care for, and identify where you will stay. This information should already be in your Emergency Preparedness plan regarding your response to a possible hurricane landfall in your area. Make sure you know the track of the storm and find out if you need to evacuate.

Coming soon! Be on the lookout for a texting option with Child Care Licensing for alerts related to possible emergencies, including hurricanes.
