Hurricane Michael: Calm Before the Storm

by

Dear Betton Neighbors,

On behalf of our Betton Hills PREP coordinators Margie and Mario and all of our wonderful Prep Block/Street Leaders we hope that you are prepared and ready for Hurricane Michael. We request that you help us by assisting ANYONE with special needs in your area. Just as important as being prepared before the storm we all need to be equally prepared for multiple days after the storm.

Those of you who live on streets that have a PREP leader please contact them for information on what assets (chainsaws, grilles, tools, etc.) are available on your block/street. If you wish to be a PREP Block/Street leader, now is the time to sign up as our goal is to have a PREP Leader on every block/street in Betton. Remember we still have almost 2 months before hurricane season is over.  

Here’s a good list of actions to take before and after the storm.

Also, see the following for important information on Sandbags, Shelters and Comfort Stations locations.

Let’s hope Michael will lose all of its punch before it makes landfall and everyone’s electric power will remain on.
