The Harris County Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management (HCOHSEM) in partnership with Clear Channel Outdoor will launch its countdown to the 2016 hurricane season via digital billboards. These public service announcements are part of HCOHSEM’s annual preparedness campaign urging residents to get ready for the upcoming hurricane season which starts on June 1st. A total of eight digital billboards will display the actual countdown to the start of hurricane season. In addition, five traditional billboards will also display preparedness messages throughout hurricane season in Harris County. Clear Channel Outdoor is providing the billboards at no charge to the county. Planning ahead can help you protect yourself, your family, and your property before disaster strikes.
