2012 FLORIDA’S SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS GUIDEDo you have a plan? – By Florida Division of Emergency Management

A Message From Governor Rick Scott:

Florida’s pristine beaches, diverse ecology, and temperate climate make our state one of the best places on Earth to reside and visit. However, this diversity can produce many natural hazards that Florida’s more than 18 million residents and tens of millions of annual visitors must be prepared to face. This Severe Weather Awareness Guide will give you and your family valuable information necessary to stay safe during an emergency. I encourage you to take a moment to read this Guide, and consider the appropriate steps needed to prepare for any potential weather related emergencies. I recommend you use these tools to develop a disaster survival plan, and an emergency supply kit. By doing so, all Floridians will better be able to protect themselves, their homes, and their businesses from all types of severe weather.

Message From The Director of the Florida – Division of Emergency Management

Florida is affected by many natural hazards, including, but not limited to, hurricanes, lightning, wildfires, floods, tornadoes and extreme temperatures. Floridians know that preparedness is important year-round, not just during hurricane season. That is why I am proud to present the 2012 Severe Weather Awareness Guide. By reading this guide you can learn interesting weather facts, and learn valuable information that can keep you and your family safe should one of these natural hazards happen in your area. From developing a family disaster plan to building an emergency supply kit, it is important that all Floridians are prepared to effectively protect themselves in the event of severe weather.
