Hurricane Preparedness Month is an annual campaign celebrated in May to raise awareness about preparing for the Atlantic Hurricane Season. The Theme for the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season is:

“Investing in Mitigation and Preparedness Today for a Better Tomorrow”

In May, DDME's Hurricane PrepareAthon will be conducted. Each week safety tips and Hurricane preparedness challenges will be given shared on DDME’s Social Media Platforms and Website encouraging people across the Turks and Caicos Island to take preventative and Preparedness actions before the threat of a Storm.

This is an opportunity for individuals, organizations and communities to prepare for specific primary and secondary hazards associated with Hurricanes such as flooding, tornadoes, storm surge etc. through drills, group discussions and exercises.

 This year the PrepareAthon will be conducted with four (4) Weekly themes:

    • Week One (May 1–9): Determine Your Risk
