A incentive to prepare for hurricane season which starts June 1st, the state has declared a 9 day tax hiatus for hurricane supplies.
If you are new to the area, consider attending a Hurricane seminar. They will have all of the information that you need to be prepared. If you cannot make it to a seminar, then check out the website of the Charlotte County Emergency Management here you will find disaster planning guides explanation of terms, supply lists, evacuation zones, evacuation routes, know your zone, tracking maps and more.
Chances are really good that you won’t need anything. But I can tell you sitting in the dark is no fun, and if we do have a storm, the stores will not have enough supplies for all that did not prepare. So take advantage of the tax free offer and purchase the “must have ” items that you should have on hand.
