National Hurricane Preparedness Week
History teaches that a lack of hurricane awareness and preparation are common threads among all major hurricane disasters. By knowing your vulnerability and what actions you should take, you can reduce the effects of a hurricane disaster. Hurricane Preparedness Week during 2010 will be held May 23rd through May 29th.
Hurricanes are a persistent threat faced by residents of southeast Texas. Each year we watch conditions in the gulf, talk around the water-cooler about what the meteorologist is forecasting, and prepare our homes and businesses for potential storms.
This week, the Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management website will be updated daily with Hurricane information. Be sure to check back to http://www.fbcoem.org each day for new information about Hurricanes, and information on what you can do to be better prepared.
Fort Bend County is located in the Texas Southeast, immediately South and West of Harris County and the city of Houston. It is the home of over 500,000 people and is one of the fastest growing counties in the United States.
