Florida CFO: Hurricane Season is 50 Days Away, Prepare Now!

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – With the start of the 2024 Hurricane Season just 50 days away, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis highlights “Prepare Florida,” a disaster preparedness initiative to encourage Floridians to prepare now before a hurricane makes landfall. CFO Patronis’ PrepareFL.com website serves as a one-stop-shop for disaster preparedness information and resources to help Floridians ensure they are prepared to weather the next storm.

CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “The 2024 Hurricane Season is just 50 days away and Floridians must prepare now for the threat of hurricanes and severe weather taking aim at our state. While we all know the devastating impacts storms can have, it’s important to review your disaster plan for your family and business to ensure you can weather the storm and recover quickly. Experts have predicted an extremely active season with up to 23 named storms with the possibility of up to five major hurricanes this season. As we’ve seen in the past, hurricanes can form and strengthen quickly, leaving little time to prepare and evacuate. The time is now to prepare and protect your home and business. Do not wait until a storm is approaching. Prepare now, Florida!”
