As we enter into late summer, we know that August and September are typically when hurricane season picks up for the state of Florida. We know how drastically life can change after disaster as people throughout Florida and the Caribbean continue working to recover after last year's Hurricane Irma.
So... let's get prepared now!
The links below offer practical ways to prepare. Please share this email with your employees, co-workers, friends, family, neighbors, church family. This year let's do our part to help everyone prepare.
