Disaster Preparation
Posted: June 28, 2013

Hurricane Season is June 1 to November 30. However, disaster preparation isn’t just about hurricanes. Lightning, wildfires and flooding are some of the problems faced by Floridians. Advance preparation can help reduce damage, family stress and ease recovery.
University of Florida/IFAS Extension provides a variety of disaster information for home, agricultural enterprises and animals of all sizes. Take a little time to prepare now and save the stress and expense of facing a disaster unprepared. If you or a family member have special needs, it is especially important to plan in advance. The Lake County Special Needs Program (352-343-9420) assists people with special medical, transportation or mobility considerations during disaster situations. It is important to register for the Lake County Special Needs Program before a disaster strikes.
