Are You and Your Family Prepared?

It’s Hurricane Preparedness Week in Massachusetts! We’ve partnered with Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency and other agencies to remind you to prepare for the impacts of a tropical storm or hurricane.  In this video, Barnstable County’s Emergency Preparedness Specialist Andrew Platt, explains our regional shelter system on Cape Cod and provides tips on being ready for a natural disaster event in our region.

Know your evacuation zone, make an emergency plan, have an emergency kit, be informed.
