Norfolk Tides, Region to Partner for Hurricane Preparedness
Displays & Prizes on Saturday, June 1st at Tides Game

Disaster Prep KitScore a home-run for you and your family at Hurricane Preparedness Day with the Norfolk Tides!  Join five Hampton Roads localities and Ready Hampton Roads at Harbor Park on Saturday, June 1, 2013, the official start of hurricane season, for an evening of baseball, prizes and disaster preparedness. Ready Hampton Roads is the region’s emergency awareness and preparedness program supported by the HRPDC.

While the Tides tangle with the Buffalo Bison, emergency management professionals from Norfolk, Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Hampton, Isle of Wight County, and Ready Hampton Roads will turn the concourse into a classroom for disaster preparation. Learn the answer to the following more:

  • How to assemble a disaster supply kit.
  • What is the National Flood Insurance Program and who needs it?
  • How can individuals with disabilities and special medical needs prepare?
  • Are pet shelters available?
  • Is there any disaster response information specific to the participating localities? 

Drawings will be held during the game for Go Kits, a backpack full of disaster supplies and other prizes. Local meteorologists from WAVY-TV 10 and WVEC-TV 13 will be available to answer your severe weather questions, and representatives from Navy Region Mid-Atlantic will also be on hand to provide additional disaster preparedness information specifically for Navy families.
