You love Florida and so do I. It is a great place to live, work, play, learn and raise a family. But at certain times of the year, we must protect ourselves, our family and our property from the threat of the severe storms that sometimes come our way.
The rule is simple. Because street flooding, fallen trees and downed power lines may make it impossible for our County or City emergency services to reach us, we need to be prepared to help ourselves! So, in the event of a hurricane or other major emergency, you must be prepared to survive on your own for 72 hours.
How? Take action before the storm, not after!
This web site provides you the information you need with easy links to proven hurricane Preparedness tips. This information will help you protect your family in any emergency and particularly help you “weather” a major storm event. Please take the time to read this valuable information and resolve to implement your personal Hurricane Protection Plan today.
Have a great and safe summer!
