Getting Ready For Peak Hurricane Month

LABELLE, FL. -- In recognition of September as Preparedness Month, The Florida Department of Health in Hendry County and Hendry County Emergency Management partnered together to create a display at the Hendry County Courthouse in LaBelle (In the hallway by the elevator; in front of the Clerk of the Courts’ Office).

The glass case displays preparedness information, examples of what to put in a disaster kit, and portrays the “weekly themes” of preparedness month. The preparedness information will be on display from now until the end of September. September is the “peak month” of hurricane season. National Preparedness Month is a time to prepare yourself, your family and your pets for any emergencies or disasters. Emergencies or disasters can happen unexpectedly…Are you prepared?
