Prepare! Hurricane Season is Upon Us

Prepare! Hurricane Season is Upon Us

06.01.11 | By

This week marks the beginning of the 2011 hurricane season. Experts are predicting one of the strongest seasons on record. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), in its 2011 hurricane season forecast, predicts 12-18 named storms during the Atlantic hurricane season, with three to six becoming serious enough to be classified as major hurricanes.

The Rx Response coalition was created after the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina as part of an effort to help ensure the smooth operation and early recovery of the pharmaceutical supply chain following a major weather disaster, accident or terrorist event.

Rx Response is closely monitoring potential storms during this hurricane season, standing by to provide crisis managers assistance in the event a storm makes landfall and pharmacy operations and the pharmaceutical supply system is disrupted.

If you live in an area where storms are common and subject to evacuation or other weather-related potential dangers, Rx Response urges you to write down and carry a list of your prescription medicines in your preparations. Rx Response provides an easy to use form to help you and your family be prepared.
