While complying with any mandatory evacuation orders given by local officials, CVS/pharmacy will keep its stores in affected areas open for as long as possible and has stocked them with storm preparedness items such as water, batteries, flashlights and other products to help in an emergency. Any stores that close due to the storm will reopen as soon as safely possible.

CVS/pharmacy will also deploy generators throughout affected markets as needed to provide power at key store locations in the event of electrical outages. The Company is also prepared to assist with storm recovery efforts in its communities and will keep in close contact with the American Red Cross to offer support in affected areas as needed once the storm passes.

Customers can access their prescription information at the Pharmacy section of CVS.com, with resources such as My Pharmacy, where patients can easily view all of their prescriptions and manage refills, and a Drug Information Center where they can ensure medications can be taken together and view descriptive images of each prescribed pill.  Prescription management services are also available at CVS/pharmacy's mobile website, m.cvs.com, and through CVS/pharmacy's iPhone and Android mobile apps.

When preparing for a hurricane or other serious weather event, CVS/pharmacy offers customers the following tips:

1. Create a plan for evacuating and finding a safe destination.

2. Keep a written record of your current prescriptions with you at all times, or create an online record at CVS.com. This is especially important if you take multiple prescriptions.

3. In the event of an emergency when you are away from home, find a pharmacy nearby to fill necessary prescriptions. CVS/pharmacy can fill its customers' prescriptions at any of its 7,400 locations nationwide. To find a CVS/pharmacy near you, visit the store locator at http://www.cvs.com/ or m.cvs.com.

4. Create an emergency kit and make sure you have all essentials in case of power outages. CVS/pharmacy has the necessities for a hurricane kit including bottled water, masking tape and batteries.
