Ocean City Mayor Signs Proclamation for National Hurrican Preparedness Week

OCEAN CITY, Md-  Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan is drawing attention to Hurricane Preparedness, as National Hurricane preparedness week begins this Monday. Meehan says with hurricane season less than a month away they’re reminding the public to keep a few crucial items in mind.

For example, carrying cash in the event, electricity takes out credit cards and mobile payments as well as keeping multiple days’ worth of medications on hand.
It’s also important to keep homes and properties storm prepped and to consider flooding insurance.
This year with supply chain shortages and inflation post-storm repairs could be even more costly and time-consuming.

“supply chain issues may be an issue for rebuilding this year but the focus is on public safety not per se property, and we want people to talk responsibility and ownership and work with us in government,” said Ocean City Emergency Services Director Joseph Theobold.

Theobold received a proclamation of the preparedness week and spoke on the need for the public to work with officials. They tell us these are all things to consider- before hand and that the wrong time to plan- is when disaster has already struck.
