Hurricane season is fast approaching. Are you ready? Orange County and the Office of Emergency Management will hold their annual Hurricane Expo on the 4th of June. This year it will be held on the east side of the county. This event is well worth the drive to the Renaissance Senior Center at 3800 South Econlockhatchee Trail. There will be talks by various experts including WFTV Meteorologist Tom Terry and Emergency Responders as well as Safety Vendors.
The Governor’s Hurricane Conference was held during the week of May 8th. Attendees from all over the state were there taking various classes in preparation for the hurricane season. The fact that we have not experienced a hurricane for many years is no excuse for not preparing for the possibility. The theme for the conference was “REBOOT READINESS”, get out of the denial, complacent mode and realize that it’s not “IF” a hurricane can hit us, it is “WHEN”.
