The 2017 Atlantic hurricane season has already been one for the books, with historic impacts in Texas and Louisiana from Hurricane Harvey. As we look ahead to Irma, Jose, Katia, and any other named storms this season, it is important to make sure you are prepared for storm effects.

The SC Emergency Management Division has released their 2017 Hurricane Guide to help South Carolinians get ready for any storms that come our way. It is full of important contact information, helpful supply lists, and evacuation routes if needed.

Reminder: All Richland County First Steps programs, including Early Head Start follow the closing schedule of Richland One schools, so please monitor local news to keep up with the latest closings.
