News Release
Thursday, May 19, 2011

Texas hurricane season officially begins June 1 and ends November 30.

Governor Rick Perry has proclaimed May 22 - May 29 as Hurricane Preparedness Week.

The 624-mile Texas Gulf coastline is vulnerable to the devastating effects of a hurricane or tropical storm.  The City of Friendswood Office of Emergency Management urges all citizens of our community to participate in hurricane preparedness activities, and to pay close attention to watch and warning instructions.

Residents living in evacuation zones are encouraged to learn their evacuation routes in advance, and to also double-check emergency supply kits for themselves and their pets, as well as for persons with functional and access needs.

Citizens are encouraged to make plans for what they will do before and after a storm.  Hurricane preparedness information - including evacuation maps, supply checklists, and more is available at:
