The National Weather Service (NWS) has declared May 9-15, 2021, to be Hurricane Preparedness Week. Camden County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) urges all Camden County citizens to take time to prepare for the upcoming hurricane season that begins June 1, 2021.
Colorado State University hurricane researchers are predicting an above-average 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Although Camden County did not receive significant effects from last year’s record-breaking season, all residents should be aware that it only takes one storm to have a major impact on our community.
“We cannot understate the importance of preparing now for the upcoming hurricane season,” said EMA Director Chuck White. “We want to encourage all Camden County residents to join us in taking action now to ensure the safety of their homes and families.”
Throughout the week, Camden County citizens will learn about determining risks, evacuation planning, disaster supplies, checking insurance, home preparation, helping neighbors, and completing a written plan. Specific information and tips will be posted throughout the week on the Camden County EMA’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
