Hurricane Season: June 1 - Nov. 30Our region has seen two hurricanes in a year: Matthew last October and Irma this September. Not quite as devastating as that infamous 2004 Atlantic hurricane season when Floridians were struck by four hurricanes in 44 days. But the reality is that we face a very real possibility of being affected by one or more hurricanes each year. We must remember the importance of preparedness. Once the storm is approaching or has passed through, it can be too late to find necessary supplies and make plans to deal with lengthy power outages, damages to our homes and other issues. On this page, you’ll find information to help develop your hurricane preparedness plan and links to other sources of assistance. 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.
