Emergency Preparedness

Hurricane Season Runs from June 1st to November 30th every year

Every family should be prepared to be self-sufficient for the first five to seven days after a major storm, so recovery efforts can focus on those who can’t help themselves. Click here to view the official hurricane preparedness, response and recovery website for Broward County.

In a major disaster, emergency workers may not be able to reach everyone right away and, in some cases, it may take 3 or more days for help to arrive.  What would you do if you had no electricity, no water, and no telephone service?  Having a plan for your family, your home and your business needs will help ensure everyone's safety and comfort during these difficult times.
