National Hurricane Preparedness Week
May 25 - May 31


The ArtsReady online emergency preparedness platform was created out of our experiences in the Southeast region with hurricanes Katrina and Rita. However, we have all learned that hurricanes and severe storms threaten us no matter where we are located. We continue to be fervent about mitigating losses within the arts community during hurricane disasters. Visit the hurricane preparedness sites below and view the ArtsReady severe weather tips to help you prepare for our next hurricane.
