Message from Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater on Hurricane Preparedness–
Floridians know that it pays to plan ahead. This week is Hurricane Preparedness Week, and with the upcoming arrival of the 2015 storm season, I hope all of you are taking appropriate steps to protect your loved ones and your property.
When thinking about hurricane preparedness, the first thing that may come to mind is purchasing non-perishable food items, bottled water for drinking and batteries for storm radios to stay informed. All of these are important when developing an emergency plan, but there’s much more that also should be done that can make getting back on your feet after a storm easier.
