Hurricane Preparedness and Recovery
June 1st marks the start of hurricane season in Florida. As Floridians, we are all too familiar with the destructive power of these storms. Begin preparing your family by reviewing the steps you should take before, during, and after a storm. By creating an emergency plan and gathering items for a supply kit, you can reduce the impact of a hurricane. This checklist suggests items for a kit and provides important phone numbers. Please post it in a central place in your home.
