Bluffton is inviting residents to participate in the town’s #ReadyBluffton Preparathon next week to help get ready for hurricane season. 

The town said the week-long initiative will begin May 9 with the first of five daily “preparation themes” that will include “specific actions to take to prepare your family for any type of emergency.” Officials will promote each day’s theme on social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Nextdoor. 

Employees help board up a Piggly Wiggly grocery store as it closes Oct. 6, 2016, on Hilton Head Island because of Hurricane Matthew.

Preparathon week will end with an in-person expo from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 14 at Oyster Factory Park. Exhibitors will include the Bluffton Police Department, Coast Guard Auxiliary, Beaufort County EMS, Beaufort Amateur Group, South Carolina Emergency Management, Bluffton Township Fire District, Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Management, S.C. Department of Mental Health, S.C. Department of Insurance, Fetch-A-Vet, and CPM Federal Credit Union.
