Community Hurricane Preparedness Day

As the school bells are ringing for the final time and temperatures continue to heat up, the summer season is knocking on our door. With the summer season comes hurricane season as well, starting June 1st.

You’ve probably heard the term, “It only takes one”, frequently when talking about tropical systems. So whether a slow or active season is predicted, planning is something everyone should do along the Gulf Coast. Here to help you plan and prepare your family is the Be Ready Alliance Coordinating for Emergencies, also known as BRACE.

The entire community is invited to the “2014 Hurricane City-Wide Disaster Preparedness Day” sponsored by BRACE, Community Maritime Park, Escambia County, Florida, Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward, the City of Pensacola along with City Council President Jewel Cannada-Wynn.

Disaster kit supplies will be given out and there will be a drawing for a free generator (must be present to win).

“It gives the public a chance to meet our emergency officials face-to-face, and get to know who would be responding,” said City Council President Jewel Cannada-Wynn.

The event will take place May 31, 2014, from 9:00am-1:00pm. The event location is the Vince J. Whibbs Sr. Community Maritime Park, 301 W Main Street, Pensacola, FL 32502.

Remember, the best plan, is to have a plan.

Hurricane season starts June 1st, and last through November.
