Commissioner George P. Bush announces hurricane preparedness public outreach campaign

May 5-11 is National Hurricane Preparedness Week

AUSTIN - Today Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush announced the Texas General Land Office (GLO) has begun a preparedness public outreach initiative to encourage Texans to be prepared and stay prepared for hurricane season, which begins June 1. 

 

The outreach coincides with FEMA's National Hurricane Preparedness Week May 5-11 and urges Texans to take time now to know their risk, review their flood insurance policy or sign up for one, protect their home, safeguard documents and prepare emergency supplies and an evacuation route.  

 

"Natural disasters damage homes and devastate the livelihoods of families, but Texans can take time now to prepare," said Commissioner Bush. "Every day we are working hard at the General Land Office to change the way Texans prepare for natural disasters, and that begins at home. I encourage all Texans to follow the GLO on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for helpful info you can share with family, friends and neighbors. Learn how to be prepared and stay prepared."

Texans can follow along on social media, watch the GLO's preparedness tips on YouTube, and find resources for family and pet preparedness at www.recovery.texas.gov/preparedness
