With Summer in full swing, that means hurricane season is too. Making sure you’re ready should be a top priority if you live in the HTC service area.
This includes planning ahead for how your family will handle severe weather and what you’ll do if a major storm threatens our area and evacuation orders are put into place. You should have an evacuation plan in place well before severe weather threatens our area, not waiting to put one together when we are in the direct path of a storm.
Some important phone numbers you should have handy this hurricane season include:
- Horry County Emergency Management Division – 843-915-5150
- American Red Cross (shelters) – 843-477-0020
- SCDOT (road and traffic conditions) – 1-888-877-9151
- Re-entry information – 1-866-246-0133
While you’re preparing your home and family, we here at HTC are also taking the necessary precautions to protect our communications equipment and continue to support you with reliable service.
In preparation, team members place sandbags around our retail offices and remote stations to ensure the safety of the equipment used to provide you with internet, home phone and other vital telecommunication services. We also get our generators prepped and ready to be available in case they are needed.
