  Columbia, S.C. - The S.C. Emergency Management

  Division releases the official 2018 South Carolina

  Hurricane Guide this weekend as part of this year’s S.C.

  Hurricane Preparedness Week. SCEMD and partner

  agencies have updated the Guide for the 2018 hurricane

  season. It details useful information on what residents

  should do before, during and after the landfall of a

  major  hurricane.

   Updated sections of the Guide include new evacuation

  zones (Dorchester County), tips on preparing for an

  evacuation, ways to stay connected during an

  emergency and steps to keep in mind when returning

  home after a major storm. The Guide also features imagery and artwork from last year’s Hurricane Irma.

 

The 2018 S.C. Hurricane Guide will be released via newspaper subscription and rack sales Sunday, May 27, in The Beaufort Gazette, the Charleston Post and Courier, the Hilton Head Island Packet, The State, the Sumter Item, the Florence Morning News, the Orangeburg Times and Democrat, the Myrtle Beach Sun News; Thursday, May 24, in the Georgetown County Chronicle, Dillon Herald and the South Strand News; Friday, May 25, in the Georgetown Times; and Wednesday, May 30, in Bluffton Today and the Jasper County Sun Times.

 

Beginning June 1, the Hurricane Guide will be available at all South Carolina Welcome Centers, at any Walgreens store statewide and at SCDMV offices in Bamberg, Beaufort, Bluffton, Charleston, Conway, Dillon, Florence, Georgetown, Kingstree, Ladson, Lake City, Little River, Mullins, Moncks Corner, Mount Pleasant, Myrtle Beach, North Charleston, Saint George and Varnville. The Guide will be available for download at scemd.org, SCEMD’s website.

 

Governor Henry McMaster has proclaimed May 27 through June 2 to be South Carolina Hurricane Preparedness Week. SCEMD, county emergency managers and the National Weather Service urge citizens to take time now to prepare for major emergency like hurricanes by reviewing their family emergency plans, developing a disaster supplies kit and talking with family members about what could happen during a crisis.

 

SCEMD releases free app to help citizens

during natural disasters

 

The South Carolina Emergency Management Division released a free mobile app last week to help citizens stay safe during natural disasters including hurricanes and tornadoes. The app features the latest information on S.C. state office closings and delays, helps users find their evacuation zone, includes information on planning for and recovering from emergencies, allows users to send their location to emergency contacts and includes an SOS flashlight. Users can also set up their own emergency plan including a pet checklist, meeting places and emergency contact numbers.


The app is free to download in the iTunes app store or Google Play.
If you have any questions about the app contact Derrec Becker, SCEMD chief of public information & external affairs via email, his cell at (803) 737-8500 or office at (803) 530-2193.

Tips for Non-Profit Organizations

For local radio and television stations across South Carolina, community service is more than a passing concern.  It is a way of doing business.  Every day in South Carolina, from the biggest cities to the smallest towns and everywhere in between, broadcasters are going to bat for community charities, educating residents about important local issues, and delivering lifesaving information and relief in times of crisis or disaster.  Non-profit groups across the state know they can turn to their local radio and television stations for a helping hand.  The tradition of community service by South Carolina broadcasters is unmatched by any other industry and one that we pledge to uphold in the years ahead.  If you want to gain exposure for your charitable organization, school or other civic group, SCBA provides these guidelines for working with the media.
