F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva will hold its second annual Hurricane Preparedness Seminar on June 20 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at The Community House, at 2173 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.

Experts will provide information and stress the importance of making an evacuation plan, gathering emergency supplies, creating lists of contacts and medicine, and more.

The speakers will include: Lance Henninger, of Sanibel Emergency Management; Debbie Quimby, Lee County Emergency Management coordinator; and F.I.S.H. Program Director Kathy Y. Monroe.

The seminar is open to the community and will include a question-and-answer session.

Attendees will also have an opportunity to pick up the F.I.S.H. Hurricane Preparedness Resource Packet. The packet provides detailed information on where to go, what to do and how to prepare in the event of an approaching storm. Those unable to attend can pick up one at F.I.S.H. Walk-In Center.

It is open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 2430-B Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.

The F.I.S.H. Hurricane Program is a collaborative effort between the organization, city officials and emergency management teams to assist island neighbors. In addition, F.I.S.H. maintains a list of those most vulnerable such as elderly, those with health and medical conditions, and those who are alone.
