Bluffton officials host hurricane preparedness meeting

Posted: Updated:

Folks in the lowcountry are preparing for whatever may come their way this hurricane season.

On Wednesday, Bluffton Township Fire District and the town of Bluffton's safety department held a hurricane preparedness meeting. Officials discussed preparation, evacuation, re-entry, and the roles different departments will have in the event of a hurricane. They also answered questions from the community.

"The most important thing is knowing those evacuation routes, knowing where you are going to go and being prepared. Just picking up and heading west out of here is not a good thing," said Sandy Stroud, Bluffton Township Fire District.
