As hurricane season continues to brew through November, the Orange County Library System has put together a Hurricane Preparedness resource guide full of important information to keep families safe in the event of a storm.
The resource guide includes topics ranging from City of Orlando resources and Orange County resources to important updates from the NOAA National Hurricane Center. The kit also includes information on local resources, news coverage, resources for those affected by a hurricane, websites, power companies, mobile applications and more.
Important numbers to know include...
- Emergencies: 911
- Non-emergencies: 311
- Fire 321-235-5200
- Police 321-235-5300
- Citizen Information Line: 407-246-HELP (4357)
The Orange County Sheriff's Office suggests preparing for an emergency during hurricane season by storing at least one gallon of water per day per person as well as at least a two-week supply of water for each person. The OCSO website also provides tips on protecting homes to prevent wind and rain damage as well as information on pets during a natural disaster.
