It’s Hurricane Season, are you JaxReady?

June 22, 2018  
Summer is upon us. Kids are out of school, days are getting longer, and it is time for another Hurricane Season.

No matter how routine it may feel, communities along the coast and around Florida must be prepared for whatever this season brings. Hurricanes Matthew and Irma have shown us that these storms can produce damaging winds, rains, and flooding conditions that have serious impacts on our communities.

It is imperative that you and your family take the time to review emergency plans, restock your kits, and assess the needs of your home.

To ensure families are JaxReady, the City of Jacksonville produces an annual Emergency Preparedness Guide. It includes important information, tips, checklists, and step-by-step instructions for what to do before, during, and after a storm.

We also encourage you to stay informed with immediate access to information by downloading the JaxReady mobile app to your mobile device. The app includes weather, news, and important emergency information straight from the Duval County Emergency Operations Center.
 
No matter what this season brings, the City is preparing and so should you! Be JaxReady!
