Hurricane Preparedness

As everyone is likely aware, hurricane season is upon us, and there is always the possibility that our City may be affected by a hurricane, as well as varying storms. It has been forecasted that we will see an increase in the number of potential storms this year. As we reach the season’s traditional peak, we ask for the community’s help to ensure that everyone is safe if a storm strikes our area.  Many of us have seen firsthand the devastation that hurricanes can cause and how other cities have been impacted by storms.  

Please ensure that the finishing touches are made to your preparations. If we receive a hurricane watch or warning, we also have to be ready to take care of the following:

  • Remove any type of furniture, branches, storage of bulk items, trash/debris, garbage, litter, etc. 
  • Call FP&L if you feel trees are growing into the powerlines.  DO NOT attempt to cut those branches yourself.
  • Secure construction sites by having any and all construction material removed or tied down, including barricades and cones.
  • Check on your neighbors that may not have anyone to depend on in these circumstances.

Please remember this is for you and your neighbor’s protection; please help us make this Hurricane Season a safe one. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your Code Compliance Unit at (954) 390-2151.
