Hurricane Awareness Week:
Help Your Neighbor

The saying “Times like this, even though tragic and devastating, bond us together as neighbors” by Jerry Reed has never been truer as evidenced by the solidarity many communities have seen during the COVID-19 pandemic. During a disaster there are many people, including the elderly and those that are disabled, that rely on the assistance of their neighbors to weather the storm. Here are a few ways you can help your neighbors:

  • Check-in on them both before a storm and after
  • Help them prepare, this can be simplified if you are able to prepare them alongside your own preparations
  • If your neighbor is unable to evacuate, help them make arrangements to get to safety
