Insurance Board has many resources to help you and your ministry get ready to help prepare for and survive a potentially disastrous event. Remember to always follow local guidelines that may apply to you and your ministry.

In recent years, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought an added layer of complexity to disaster planning. Even if you have already put plans in place for hurricanes and tropical storms, you should review your plans or checklists and think about ways that COVID-19, or other similar events, may impact the plan you have in place. This may include what is in your go-kit (masks anyone?), evacuation routes, and the set-up of shelters in a time of social distancing.

Now is a good time to review and revise your emergency plans, not only for hurricanes but also for other natural disasters including tornados, wildfires, flooding, and earthquakes. Ensure that your plan takes into account the latest health and safety guidelines from the CDC, FEMA, and local officials.

Visit the National Hurricane Center’s website throughout the season to stay current on watches and warnings.
