Being prepared ahead of time is key. By creating a family emergency plan, staying informed as severe weather approaches, and finally keeping your family and friends aware of your location and situation are ways to stay prepared. For more information on how to develop your plan, please go to www.floridadisaster.org/getaplan/ and www.fdot.gov/emergencymanagement/.



Please ensure that when transporting anything on the outside of your vehicle, take the time to make sure everything is tied down and secured properly!
