Hurricane Preparedness Tips

Hurricane season is June 1 through November 30. Weather experts predict that the 2018 hurricane season will be "slightly above average." Hurricane Irma served as a stark reminder that it is imperative to prepare your family and home for potential hurricanes.

Have a Plan – Prior to the threat of a disaster, families can create a personalized Family Disaster Plan at This site provides checklists and important steps to take before, during and after the disaster.

Home Repair – Be cautious of repair businesses or individuals who solicit door-to-door in the wake of a hurricane. Check each contractor's address, license and complaint history prior to hiring by calling the Department of Business and Professional Regulation at 850-487-1395, or visit their website at

Food Safety – Power may go out due to storm winds, potentially affecting food storage. Get food safety tips at

Generator Safety – Portable generators are useful during power outages, but they can also be dangerous. Carbon monoxide poisoning can occur from generators or grills when they are used indoors, in partially enclosed spaces, or near vents or windows that allow fumes to enter your home.
