HARRIS COUNTY — Constable Mark Herman and his deputies would like to ensure the citizens of Precinct 4 are prepared this hurricane season.

The most important thing you can do is to get yourself, your family and your home prepared. Prepare for a hurricane by stocking up on emergency supplies including food, water, protective clothing, medications, batteries, flashlights, important documents, roadmaps and a full tank of gasoline.

Take these steps to prepare yourself from dangerous weather:

Have an emergency plan

• Create an emergency plan and review it with everyone in your home. Make sure everyone knows the safest location in the home.

Stock up on supplies

• Be sure to have the proper necessities, such as water, blanket, first aid kits, flashlights, batteries, radios and any pet care items.

Out–of-town contact

• Make sure to have an out-of-state friend or family member as a contact, so they can check on your whereabouts.

Follow emergency instructions

• Follow all instructions from authorities regarding evacuation and other safety protocols. Check radio, television or other media outlets for emergency information.

Have an evacuation route

• Make sure you know your evacuation route before the hurricane hits and keep a full tank of gas.

Protect important documents

• Make sure important documents such as ID cards and other vital information are placed in a secured, waterproof container.

Don’t forget about the pets

• Have pet essentials handy, such as: pet food, medications, toys and other pet needs.

Stay prepared this hurricane season!
