Hurricane season is June 1 to Nov. 30. The American Lung Association of Gulf Coast Florida urges people with breathing problems to make plans before a threatening hurricane is forecast. The association has developed a brochure, Hurricane Preparedness for Those with Respiratory Problems, which outlines hurricane preparedness procedures to follow before, during and after a hurricane strikes. Among the suggestions in the brochure is that patients call their electric company to see if it makes provisions for life-sustaining medical equipment during disaster situations. For a free copy of the brochure, call (800) 771-5863.
