2021 Hurricane Season Preparedness

Hurricane season begins June 1st and  lasts through November 30th.  Now is the time for you and your family to review your plans and supplies to ensure you are prepared in the event of a storm.
 
The Brevard County Emergency Operations Center has provided the following resources to help everyone get ready for this hurricane season:


Step 1: Make a Plan (https://www.ready.gov/hurricanes)  – Take a moment to think how these events may affect your community and your family.  Important items in your plan should include: taking current pictures of your house, storing important documents together for quick access, building an evacuation kit, knowing your evacuation route and time of departure, having a list of important numbers, and sharing your plans with friends and family.

Step 2: Build a Kit (http://www.brevardfl.gov/EmergencyManagement/BuildAKit)  – An emergency supply kit is essential to being prepared and is an important item for hurricane season. Do not wait until the last minute to build your kit.

Step 3: Stay Informed (http://www.brevardfl.gov/EmergencyManagement/StayInformedGathering information and staying informed before, during, and after a heavy weather event is critical. Brevard County has many different methods available for staying informed; however, no one method is fail-safe. For the most up-to-date hurricane information, follow:



Removal of Vessels from Port Canaveral Marinas and Waterways

Pursuant to Florida law and the Canaveral Port Authority’s Tariff No. 16, be advised that vessels under 500 gross tons are prohibited from remaining in the waters of a marina upon the issuance of a hurricane watch.  Such vessels must also be removed from Port Canaveral marinas and waterways upon the issuance of an evacuation order by the CPA.  If the vessel owner has failed to do so, marina owners, operators, employees or agents, if reasonable, are authorized by Florida law to remove or cause to be removed such a vessel once Port Condition Yankee is set, and the vessel owner may be charged a reasonable removal fee.  In such event, the CPA may fine the vessel owner or operator in an amount not exceeding three times the cost associated with removing the vessel from the waterway.
