Emergencies are not the time to panic. With a well developed plan for you, your family, and business, you can ride our an emergency with ease and comfort. The State of Florida and other Emergency Management entities are great resources in time of despair. The most important thing to remember is that a well developed plan takes time. Do not wait until the last moment or when mother nature strikes to plan. Be prepared. The 72 hours before and after are crucial to your health and safety.
