ha.jpgHOW EFFECTIVE IS YOUR HURRICANE PLAN?

bp.PNGMany community associations activate an emergency plan as a hurricane approaches. But just how thorough is yours? ​CAI's award-winning magazine, Common Ground, recently reported on a hurricane preparedness plan that your community can model in the article, High Anxiety​. The plan—from a Florida condominium—is written with military-style precision, featuring an Incident Command System complete with a flow chart of key steps to be taken before, during, and after a major storm.​

Working with FEMA 

FEMA does NOT reimburse community associations that remove debris from private roads. We strongly encourage you to review the guidelines for removing debris​ NOW.
