Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in Region 6 is joining its federal, state and local partners in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas to commemorate Hurricane Preparedness Week by sharing critical information about the 2011 Hurricane Season which starts on June 1 and ends on Nov. 30.
The week-long commemoration provides an opportunity for emergency management experts to remind everyone about this year’s outlook for the Atlantic Hurricane Season and how to prepare in advance.
“We encourage everyone to take basic steps to get ready before hurricane season begins,” said FEMA Region 6 Administrator Tony Russell. “Everyone should put together an emergency kit, create a family plan and stay informed.”
Those in hurricane-prone areas are urged to prepare now.
