Preparing Your Home and Family:

  • Stay Informed: Regularly monitor weather reports from trusted sources like the National Hurricane Center ( and Pembroke Pines official channels.

  • Develop a Family Hurricane Plan:  Discuss your plan with your family, including evacuation routes, designated shelters, and communication strategies. Practice your plan with your children to ensure they understand what to do.

  • Assemble an Emergency Kit:  Create a well-stocked emergency kit containing non-perishable food, bottled water, first-aid supplies, medications, flashlights, batteries, a battery-powered radio, and a whistle. Don't forget to include comfort items for your child, such as their favorite stuffed animal or blanket.
