Schatz advises residents to prepare for hurricane season

By Associated Press

POSTED:



Hawaii Lt. Gov Brian Schatz is warning residents to prepare for hurricane season.

Schatz said June 1 marked the start of hurricane season in Hawaii, and it's only a matter of time before a major natural disaster hits the islands.

He advises that residents create evacuations and communications plans in the event families become separated.

They should make a disaster supplies kit and store enough supplies for at least five to seven days.

Finally, residents can help themselves by learning first aid and CPR.

The Hawaii Red Cross has launched a website with information about how to prepare businesses, schools and homes for natural disasters at HawaiiRedCross.org.
