The six month Atlantic Hurricane Season officially begins June 1st and runs through November 30th. We should all be prepared to take actions to lessen a storm's impact.
The Town of Hilton Head Island has worked with county and state officials to develop comprehensive plans to respond effectively and to ease the evacuation and re-entry processes. In addition, we have also developed strategies to expedite and ease our recovery efforts by establishing an emergency reserve account to fund these activities and by amending our Land Management Ordinance to facilitate a rapid reestablishment of our community following a hurricane or other disaster. In the event of a potential or actual storm strike, you play a key role in a successful pre- and post-disaster scenario. Your Town wants you to be prepared for whatever comes our way this year. The best way to protect your family from the effects of a disaster is to have a disaster plan. Make plans now!
If you have any questions or concerns regarding hurricane evacuations or Island reentry procedures, please contact Thomas Dunn at (843)682-5156.
