Welcome to the Emergency Preparedness Center of barnstablepatriot.com.
We’ve assembled a quick reference to local, state and national resources that may be useful in planning for the possibility of a major storm.
While shelters would be provided in the event of a hurricane, the ability to provide at least three days worth of food, necessary medications and other provisions is part of any good home disaster plan.
Keep informed of current emergency notices via local radio and regional television stations. Public safety officials stress that directions to evacuate, home shelter or other action requests need to be followed.
