**Preparedness Actions**

  • 2019 City of Jacksonville Preparedness Guide: http://www.coj.net/departments/fire-and-rescue/emergency-preparedness.aspx
  • Review and update MOL information: https://www.mol.usmc.mil/
  • Now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary actions to secure your family, home or business.
  • Ensure that your emergency supplies kit is stocked and ready.
  • Monitor the latest forecast at https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/
  • Know what you would do in the event of a severe thunderstorm or tornado watch or warning.  If a tornado warning is issued for your area, seek shelter immediately in an interior room, away from windows.
  • If you see a flooded roadway, remember the phrase Turn Around, Don't Drown and always take your time when traveling.
  • NEVER drive through flooded roadways as road beds may be washed out under flood waters, and just one foot of fast-moving flood water can move most cars off the road.
  • Be aware that flash flooding can occur.  If there is any possibility of a flash flood, move immediately to higher ground.  Do not wait for instructions to move.
  • Be aware of stream, drainage channels, canals and other areas known to flood suddenly.  Flash floods can occur in these areas with little or no warning.
  • If thunder roars, go indoors.  If you can hear thunder, you are close enough to be struck by lightning and should seek shelter.
  • Dump and / or drain any and all residual standing water.
  • Be a good Samaritan and check on those who may not be fully aware of the situation or who are unable to make personal preparations.
