It's All About Preparedness

Living in beautiful South Florida also means living with the threat of hurricanes. Unfortunately, few people take hurricane preparation seriously until weather forecasters predict a storm is about to hit our coastline. The best way to protect your life and property is to plan ahead.

If you have ever experienced a hurricane, then you know it is serious business. Hurricanes can bring storm surge, high winds, tornadoes and flooding. Miami-Dade County is committed to coordinating information
and resources to support our community’s disaster preparedness, response and recovery needs, but we cannot do it alone. Being prepared is everyone’s responsibility.

This hurricane season, don’t wait. Get a kit. Make a plan. Be informed. And keep this Guide to Hurricane Readiness with your disaster kit so you are ready if and when a hurricane strikes.
