Operation Hurricane Prepare is designed so that individuals, organizations and community groups can be prepared for an emergency or natural disaster. Your involvement will help people you care about. This kit is for organizers but could easily be adapted to help individuals prepare for an emergency.
Hurricanes are notable for their scale, unpredictability or both. A hurricane can leave devastation in its wake, with impact that is often most severe for people who failed to plan for emergencies. You probably have friends, family and neighbors who have no plans for how to act when a hurricane is imminent, or how to respond after one has struck.
“Operation Hurricane Prepare” allows you to help others in your neighborhood who need to get ready.
