Dear Church Family,

It's been an incredible week preparing for Hurricane Irma. We hope everyone is taking precautions and staying safe. Teams from our church have been all over the community for the past 2 days helping those in need of help with their preparations. We want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has been volunteering their time to love and serve our community during this time.

If you would like to volunteer to help with last minute preparations or after the storm clean up please also contact the church office at 754-900-8974.

QUICK CHECK LIST:

Secure Your Home – Shutter windows and glass doors, and anchor loose yard objects or bring them inside

Prepare a Water Supply – Know who your water service provider is so you will know if a “boil water” order applies to your home. Check your water bill if you are unsure. As the storm approaches, fill pre-sanitized sinks and tubs with clean water for bathing and flushing toilets.

Set Appliances – Turn refrigerators and freezers to highest settings in anticipation of a power outage.

Get Cash – Banks and ATMs do not operate without electricity.

Get Gas – Gas pumps do not work without electricity.

Charge Phones – Charge your cell phone and other mobile devices. Get a car charger to help charge mobile devices after the storm.

Check on Neighbors – Check on your neighbors — especially the elderly and those with special needs.

Notify Others of Your Plans – Have an out-ofstate friend as a family contact, so all family members have a single point of contact. Notify this contact and other family members and friends of your plans.

Plan For Your Pet — Specialized pet shelters, pet-friendly hotels, veterinary clinics and friends and relatives out of harm’s way are ALL potential refuges for your pet during a disaster. For a list of pet-friendly hotels visit Humanebroward.com. If you plan to go with your pet to a pet-friendly shelter, space is limited. Advance in-person registration is recommended, but not required. Call the Broward County Humane Society at 954- 989-3977.

Medical Prep - Prepare ahead for your medical needs such as dialysis, insulin, oxygen and any prescription drugs. The emergency refill law now allows you to obtain a 30-day supply of medications when an emergency is declared.
