|Preparing for Hurricane Season
LIVINGSTON June 5, 2017 - When a hurricane threatens, listen for instructions from local officials. When they call for an evacuation in your area, get going without delay.
Monitor NOAA weather radio and local TV and radio broadcasts during storm season.
Prepare an emergency supply kit including: radio, flashlight, extra batteries, extra eye glasses, bottled water, non-perishable food, dry clothes, bedding, insurance information, important documents, medications, copies of prescriptions and special products for babies, seniors, medically fragile family members, and pets.
Learn evacuation routes before storm season. When there’s a hurricane in the Gulf, keep your gas tank as full as possible. Expect traffic delays in an evacuation.
Register in the State of Texas Emergency Assistance Registry (STEAR) online at https://STEAR.dps.texas.gov or Dial 2-1-1 to register if you have a disability or medical needs or if you simply do not have transportation: Gulf coast residents in evacuation zones with a disability or medical needs—who do not have friends or family to help—or do not have transportation should register in STEAR in advance.
