Get prepared!

Living in Florida we are used to the threats that come during hurricane season.  It is important to remember to be prepared and take precautions as any storm approaches.

The University of Florida provides some great tips on how we can stay safe during  this unpredictable weather season:

BEFORE THE STORM

 DURING THE STORM

  • Stay indoors and do not travel during the storm
  • If winds become strong, stay away from doors and windows. Take refuge in an interior room, closet or hallway
  • Do NOT use candles, which can increase fire risk
  • Understand that emergency services and scheduled bus routes might not be able to respond or operate during the storm
