Hurricane season just started (June 1st) and meteorologists are predicting this season will be one of the worst seasons in recent years. NOAA predicts that there will be 13 to 20 named storms, 6 of those will become major hurricanes with speeds topping 111 mph, with a 50% chance of one of those major hurricanes making landfall. It's no question that hurricanes cause massive amounts of damage and costs to property owners, but the question is, are you and your family prepared for the possibility of enduring a major hurricane?

Have you ever wanted to learn how to best prepare yourself for the worst of storms? Do you know what supplies and knowledge you need to have to be prepared? How to passively and actively prepare for the worst? How to insure your individual safety as well as the economic safety of your assets? And how to insure the well being of those you care about while increasing self sufficiency and not having to rely on others during a crisis (i.e. the government, emergency services that will be likely be unavailable during a disaster). This class will be covering these topics, however it will cover many areas of preparedness in general and can be superimposed onto many different emergency scenarios.

In this class we will cover all levels of hurricane preparedness, including:
- What you need to know about hurricanes
- Monitoring developing hurricanes and trajectory
- How to "stormproof" your home
- Preparing your vehicles to evacuate
- What supplies you and your family need before the storm
- When is it time to evacuate?
- What to do during the storm
- Staying up to date while the storm is happening
- Safeguarding against storm surge
- What to do after the storm
- Recouping from a disaster
- Financial security and peace of mind
- Much more...

Hurricane season has already started and the time to get prepared is already passing by, don't be caught flocking to the store just before a storm is about to hit, be self sufficient, be ahead of the pack, be prepared!

"Preparation through education is less costly than learning through tragedy." --Max Mayfield, Director National Hurricane Center

      Didn't even think of that when I made the date, oh well, I'll be sure to keep important dates in mind next time I plan a class. The Urban Survival meetup will be planned accordingly.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
