Prepare, Prepare, Prepare!

July 24, 2017  

Is your family prepared for the next storm? Do you know your evacuation zone? Is your supply kit stocked? Get the answers to these questions and make sure you’re JaxReady this hurricane season. 

As a father, my greatest responsibility is to protect my family. As mayor, I am equally committed to the safety of all citizens. In both cases, preparation is key. That’s why we publish the JaxReady Emergency Preparedness Guide every year.
The guide provides important information on various threats, along with tips and step-by-step instructions for being better prepared in an emergency. You can pick up your copy at City offices, facilities and local libraries throughout the community. It can also be downloaded online at
As an added resource, the City recently updated the JaxReady Mobile App with enhanced performance and graphics. The app allows you to find your evacuation zone, connects you with updates from the Emergency Operations Center, and provides timely weather information and forecasts.
With these resources, your family is sure to be JaxReady this hurricane season.
