PLAY HARD FLORIDA’s Quick Tips
Pour out a bit of water from your plastic water bottles and put them in the freezer — this will allow room for the water to expand when it freezes. Use the frozen bottles to keep the food in your coolers cold and drink them as they melt.
Turn your refrigerator and freezer to their coldest settings prior to the storm.
If you have family members sensitive to heat turn your air conditioning to a cold setting before the storm to give you extended comfort after you lose power.
Make sure you have a cell phone charger for your car or a solar charger if you don’t have a generator.
The Play Hard Florida team wishes you the best in your preparations and safety during the storm!
Stop standing in park lines - start making memories!
