As part of National Hurricane Preparedness Week, May 24-30, Wrightsville Beach urges residents, visitors and business owners to take the following steps to plan ahead for hurricane season:
- Make an evacuation plan, including plans for pets,
- Purchase town vehicle tax decals (these serve as identification for re-entry following an evacuation),
- Prepare plywood or storm shutters to protect property, and
- Create a disaster preparedness kit (including water, nonperishable foods, flashlights, prescriptions, etc.)
