With Hurricane Matthew right around the corner, here are some key preparedness tips to make sure you and your family stay safe.

  1. Know where to go. If you are ordered to evacuate, know the local hurricane evacuation route(s) to take and have a plan for where you can stay. Contact your local emergency management agency for more information.
  2. Put together a disaster supply kit, including a flashlight, batteries, cash, first aid supplies, and copies of your critical information if you need to evacuate.
  3. If you are not in an area that is advised to evacuate and you decide to stay in your home, plan for adequate supplies in case you lose power and water for several days and you are not able to leave due to flooding or blocked roads.
  4. Make a family emergency communication plan.
  5. Download the NextRadio app to your smartphone so you have access to local fm radio for important emergency alerts when landlines, Wi-Fi or cell service is down.


Severe weather happens a lot more than any of us would like to admit, which is why we need to make sure we have a plan during those situations. Make a plan, be prepared and stay informed during emergencies with NextRadio.
