Each year hurricane season begins on June 1st, and for South Florida, the storms typically start to peak in August and September, but it is always best to be prepared as one of these massive could come ashore anytime during the hurricane season. Having essential supplies and preparing ahead of time could truly be a life saver.

Unfortunately, it seems that when a hurricane does threaten any area, a lot of people rush out at the last minute to get the supplies that they need, like water, non-perishable food, gas for vehicles and other items, only to find stores have run out of many of these essential items. 

Preparing ahead of time will alleviate a lot of the potential stress and anxiety of being in a last-minute, very rushed and chaotic situation looking for the essential items that you need, but can't find them, anywhere.

The time to prepare is now, and the Rick Case Automotive Group "makes it easy" to get ready.
