Hurricane Season is June 1st through November 30th.
It has now been a while since that infamous 2004 Atlantic hurricane season during which Floridians were struck by four hurricanes within in 44 days. But along with all the beautiful weather and fun recreational activities that we enjoy in our state, the fact is that each year we face a very real possibility of being affected by a hurricane. Those of us who were here during the 2004 season are not likely to forget the lesson we were taught on the importance of preparedness. Once the storm is approaching or has passed through, it is often too late to obtain necessary supplies and make plans to deal with lengthy power outages, damages to our homes, and other issues. We've provided information on developing your hurricane preparedness plan, as well as links to other sources of information. This information can save lives, so please click the links below to see how you and your loved ones can be prepared for the next storm.
The College has a Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) that provides guidelines
and directs our resources before, during and after event. Campus Safety is responsible
to track weather activity in the Atlantic Basin and report to the Senior Administration
if action is necessary.
Below are links with some tips that you may find helpful to prepare you and your family for Hurricane Season and some handy sites are listed below for your reference. Staying informed is a critical piece of Hurricane readiness.
