Prepare for the height of hurricane season with savings on supplies

Though summer is winding down, the Atlantic hurricane season is heating up.

Hurricane season officially lasts until the end of November each year but reaches its peak in mid-September. That’s why homeowners should be proactive in determining their risk and devising a plan to secure their properties against the threat of severe weather.

Farm Bureau members can access storm preparedness resources through Virginia Farm Bureau’s Hurricane Preparedness Central webpage, which is designed to help homeowners keep their families and property safe during damaging storm events.

And, when shopping for emergency supplies, members can do so at a discount with savings from Grainger. Essential items include:

  • flashlights and extra batteries
  • portable, battery-operated radios
  • first-aid kit and essential medicine
  • emergency food and water
  • manual can opener
  • duct tape, tarps, cleaning supplies, insulated coolers, gasoline, generators, all-purpose extension cords and portable blowers, all available to members at a discount from Grainger.com.

For more storm preparedness information, visit grainger.com/content/hurricanes, or the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety’s hurricane resource page.
