Stay Prepared for the Storm

Living in South Carolina means that everyone needs to understand and be prepared for hurricanes. We can't prevent hurricanes, but we can take action to protect ourselves and our families from these storms' dangers.


Water & Food Safety

Make sure your food and water is safe to consume. When in doubt, throw it out.
