Whether this is your first hurricane season living in Harris County or you're a long time resident, there is no better time to prepare than National Hurricane Preparedness Week, and Harris County Public Library is here to help! Below you'll find links to resources to help you with emergencies, disasters, and mental health. Janny Tram at the Aldine Branch Library put together a very helpful emergency contact list for Harris County residents which is featured on the right.
I find that the best thing I can do for my own peace of mind is to prepare as much as possible, but emergency situations still cause a lot of stress! May is also Mental Health Awareness Month. Texans Recovering Together partnered with the High Meadows Branch to provide advice about “Regulating Emotions During Difficult Times.” Check out the recording on Facebook.
HCPL also has a lot of books about being prepared for the unexpected. We've linked some of them down below!
