With the 2022 hurricane season upon us, it's important to take steps now to protect your home and family BEFORE a storm hits. With that in mind, I want to share some helpful tips and resources from Pinellas County Emergency Management to keep you safe and informed this hurricane season.

          For Active Storm Situations

          In the event of an approaching storm, it’s always best to have a plan in the event you need to shelter in place or leave your home.

  • Look up your evacuation zone in one of the following ways:
    o Visit http://pinellascounty.org/knowyourzone.
    o Download the Ready Pinellas app for iOS or Android
    o If you have a land line, you can call 727-453-3150 and enter your 10-digit home phone number.
