Hurricane Readiness in The Woodlands

Please see announcement from the township below regarding hurricane awareness. There will be a public meeting on June 18, 2011, at the Township Service Center.

I want to remind you that the start of hurricane season is here. We in the Neighborhood Services Department of The Woodlands Township are preparing (see attached flyer) and recommend that you do the same. Below is a partial message from FEMA urging all Americans to be prepared. If you have any questions or concerns please attend our Community wide Emergency Preparedness event on 18 June between 9 a.m. and noon at the Township Service Center.

Thanks for your continued participation and support.

WASHINGTON — Today, June 1, marks the official start of the 2011 North Atlantic hurricane season, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency has been working closely with its federal, state, local and tribal partners, the private sector, voluntary organizations and the entire emergency management team to ensure we are ready for the upcoming season……

“Recent events including the deadly tornadoes in the central U.S. and southeast, flooding along the Mississippi and other emergencies serve as a reminded that we should be prepared to address all hazards, including hurricanes,” said FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate. “Everyone needs to be prepared, not just those in hurricane prone states, but also areas well inland. This means having an emergency plan, storing an emergency kit and staying informed of alerts or messages from local emergency officials.”
