Hey Yall! I hope that everyone is making a plan for Hurricane Irma to be safe and sound along with your family and pets! As you're aware, Hurricane Irma is expected to have a significant impact on Savannah, Tybee and the surrounding areas. We encourage you, our friends, neighbors, and clients to take the necessary steps to ensure the safety of your family, home and business.

Jenny's cell is 912-414-7155  if you need to contact her for any reason! 
If you are evacuating, be reasonable with what you take; no more than two hand-carry bags per person. If you are going to a shelter make sure you bring the following items: ·        prescription medications
·        extra clothing
·        pillow and blankets
·        hygiene supplies
·        important documents and other comfort items
·        special items for children such as diapers, formula and    toys, and items needed by family members with unique  needs 
Evacuees requiring transportation can bring dogs and cats on public buses if the animals are in owner-provided travel carriers or on a leash.
Pets should have:
·        dogs should have proof of current vaccinations for rabies, DHLP, Bordetella and corona
·        cats should have proof of current vaccinations for rabies, feline leukemia, and FVRCP
·        feeding bowls & four days of food; water
·        tagged collar
·        litter
·        medications
Service animals will be accepted in all shelters in accordance with ADA guidelines. Local representatives will work with pet owners to identify appropriate accommodations for your pets.
Citizens with functional medical needs (FMN) should call the Chatham County Public Health Department at 912-691-7443  for help with finding resources.
The more hazards in your location, the more important it is that you leave even if it is only precautionary.  If you live in a mobile home, even if it is well away from the coast and tied down, the wind can pose a threat to your safety.  If you live in a hurricane evacuation zone you should leave as early as possible.
What to take when you evacuate:
·       important documents to include wills, insurance policies,    contracts, birth certificates and citizenship information
·        critical computer files, stocks & bonds
·        passports, Social Security cards, military records
·        bank account records
·        credit card names and numbers
·        Inventory and household goods
·        photos/video
·        medical and dental records, and prescriptions
·        adoption papers and court orders
