The City of Summit Office of Emergency Management is providing information to help residents prepare during hurricane season. As Tropical Storm Hermine approaches Florida, these tips will enable citizens to plan for possible severe weather conditions in the area this weekend.
The Office of Emergency Management recommends assembling a disaster supply kit with a flashlight, batteries, first aid supplies, water, and cash in the event of a power outage or flooding. Citizens are advised to complete a FEMA Family Communication Plan listing important information needed in an emergency. The form can be found on the Office of Emergency Management page, www.cityofsummit.org/oem.
Please be advised; the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has issued advisories for strong rip tides and moderate to strong winds with rain possible in New Jersey over Labor Day weekend. The Office of Emergency Management urges all residents to stay safe while traveling this weekend, watch the weather, and use caution at the beach.
