Hurricane season reminder

Don’t let your guard down. We’re still in hurricane season

The end of the summer signals the peak of hurricane season. We know this year has been exceptionally quiet in the tropics, but anything can happen in the next few months.

CVE Master Management wants to make sure you are still prepared in the event of a storm.

Have an emergency kit

Whether you evacuate or ride out the storm in the Village, you’ll need several days’ worth of food, medication and supplies. It’s best to prepare now as stores will be crowded and supplies limited when the storm gets closer. Your hurricane emergency kit should contain:

  • COVID-19 vaccine records
  • Water — one gallon per person per day
  • Non-perishable food
  • Flashlights, extra batteries and bulbs
  • Battery-operated radio, extra batteries if needed
  • First aid kit
  • At least one week of all medications, medical equipment and supplies
  • Personal hygiene items
  • Manual can opener
  • Copies of documents like deeds, birth certificates, insurance policies, etc.
  • Several days’ worth of clothes
  • Books, cards, puzzles and other non-electronic sources of entertainment
  • Extra set of keys
  • Sunscreen, sunglasses and hat
  • Umbrella

Designated meeting spots

Establish designated meeting spots, including ones outside the Village should you not be allowed to return. Print everyone’s phone number and establish an out-of-town friend or family member who can serve as a point of contact.

Document care needs

If you have a loved one who may need assistance during a storm, download and complete a caregiver emergency readiness pack and keep readily available. The documentation can be provided to shelters if and when your loved one is admitted.

Don’t forget about your pets

During a storm your pets also need to be cared for. If they take medication, make sure you have at least one week’s worth. Most important, make sure you have enough food to last a week. Finally, if you need to leave your home and stay in a shelter, remember not all shelters accept pets.

If you need to stay in a shelter, be prepared to show both proof of rabies certificate for dogs and cats, and your pet’s Broward County Registration Tag. Bring supplies to care for your pet, including food and water, food/water bowls, cat litter and litter box, medicine, cleaning supplies, etc. Service animals are permitted in General Population Shelters so long as the pet meets the requirements under Federal law.

The closest pet friendly shelter is Lyons Creek Middle School, 4333 Sol Press Blvd, Coconut Creek 33073. Not all shelters open for all storms. Check with Broward County to see if a shelter is open.
