Developing an emergency plan for yourself and your family can ensure that in the event of a hurricane in our area your valuables and your home is secure. These are some easy steps that you can take to be prepared:
Maintain adequate levels of renter or flood insurance (which includes a 30-day waiting period before going into effect), even if you do not live in a flood plain.
Safeguard important personal documents such as birth certificates, deeds or insurance policies.
Keep emergency supplies like bottled water and canned food on hand.
Additionally, I encourage you to sign up for Bay City’s Emergency Community Notification System, Hyper-Reach.

Hyper-Reach enables real-time, two-way communication through text, email, voice messages, social media, and the Hyper-Reach mobile app. To sign up, please visit the Hyper-Reach Signup page.
