  • Prepare an emergency kit and make a nonprofit communications plan.
  • Know your surroundings, the elevation level of your property, and whether the land is prone to flood. Also Identify levees and dams that may pose a hazard to your nonprofit or community.
  • Learn evacuation routes and educate your volunteers.
  • If in a high-rise building, be prepared to take shelter on or below the 10th floor

SECURE YOUR PROPERTY
  • Cover all of your Nonprofit’s windows. Permanent storm shutters offer the best protection for windows but 5/8” marine plywood, cut to fit and ready to install will provide protection.
  • Install straps to fasten your roof to the framing structure.
  • Keep trees and shrubs around your nonprofit’s building manicured.
  • Clean rain gutters and downspouts of debris.
  • Reinforce garage doors to avoid structural damage from wind.
  • Plan storage for outdoor furniture, decorations, garbage cans, etc.
  • Pre-determine how to secure any boats.
  • Install a generator.
  • Consider building a safe room for your volunteers or visitors.
