Dorian is Coming: Be Prepared!

We still don’t know where exactly Hurricane Dorian will make landfall which is exactly why you should be preparing now.  According to the National Weather Service, this storm will impact the entirety of Florida as a Category 4 storm with sustained winds of up to 130 miles an hour. Authorities are urging residents to stockpile a week's worth of food and supplies.

The clock is ticking. Don't waste time. Prepare yourself and your family now.

Please take the safety of yourself and your family seriously. AFSCME members are on the frontlines making sure our infrastructure functions during natural disasters and their aftermaths.
