Hurricane Preparedness

Hurricane Season is June 1st through November 30th, however severe weather can happen anytime, anywhere. By taking steps to prepare, we can protect our families, homes, businesses and communities from the potentially devastating effects of a storm.

Below are two publications available to download. Both of these publications offer guidelines, checklists and contact information to assist you in preparing for and dealing with an emergency weather situation. In addition, links to several agencies that offer information as well as resources for specific assistance is provided.

Please use these valuable resources of information to best prepare your family, home and business for the upcoming season.

FPL Florida Power and Light
Immediately after a storm, FPL will know if large power lines have been damaged and you’re without power. FPL will deploy field teams to conduct neighborhood-by-neighborhood damage assessments. This helps FPL to assign the right resources, crews and materials to each effort and to provide customers an estimate of when repairs will be finished and power restored in their area.  Depending on the severity of the storm, FPL will provide a total system Estimated Time of Restoration (ETR) within 24 hours after a storm has passed and no longer poses a safety risk to field teams and restoration crews.  County ETRs are provided within 48 hours, and sub-county ETRs within 72 to 96 hours.

If your neighborhood gets power back after a storm -- but you’re still without power -- then call FPL at 1-800-4-OUTAGE. Be sure to have your account number available when you call and an automated system will record your outage information. You can choose to receive automatic updates on our efforts to restore your service.
