New Jersey County Preparing For Hurricane Season

This September has been recognized as National Preparedness Month (NPM).  For those who are unfamiliar with this, NPM is a time where we all should take action to prepare for disasters of any kind. Over the course of the month, each week is dedicated to a particular theme of the planning process. The themes over the course of the month are:

  1. Make a Plan for Yourself, Family and Friends
  2. Plan to Help Your Neighbor and Community
  3. Practice and Build Out Your Plans
  4. Get Involved! Be a Part of Something Larger

As part of their disaster preparation plan, Monmouth County New Jersey is reminding everyone about the “Know Your Zone” campaign as we enter peak hurricane season. The county is installing 70 signs, which can be seen below evacuation route signs, in coastal communities throughout Monmouth County to remind residents and visitors to get familiar with the zone that they live in.

With memories of Hurricane Sandy still fresh in the minds of many New Jersey residents, and recent hurricanes in Texas and Florida, now is the best time to make sure you have a plan just in case disaster strikes.
