The National Hurricane Committee (NHC) has declared 18 June as National Hurricane Preparedness Day, and Cayman's hardware stores (Cox, Kirk's Home Centre, Uncle Bill's and AL Thompson) have joined the preparedness drive. This Saturday (9 June) these stores are all hosting in-store demonstrations by Public Works Department staff, to help you learn how to make your own plywood shutters. The staff will also give tips on how to use and connect generators safely. Store personnel and Government Information Services staff will be on hand to answer questions on hurricane supplies, and give preparedness tips. For more information on how to prepare your home and family for the hurricane season, log on to CaymanPrepared.
