CFO Jimmy Patronis Highlights Urban Search & Rescue, Importance of Hurricane Prep in Tampa

TAMPA, Fla.–
As a part of his Prepare Florida initiative, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis was joined by members of Urban Search & Rescue Florida Task Force 3 (FL-TF3) in Tampa today to urge Floridians to prepare for disasters now before the next hurricane takes aim at Florida. Experts have predicted an active 2019 Hurricane Season with the possibility of up to four major hurricanes.
 
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “Following a hurricane, Florida's dedicated Urban Search & Rescue Teams respond quickly to keep our communities safe in the aftermath of devastation. These brave men and women train year-round so they can serve us when disaster strikes.
 
“Hurricane season will reach its peak in August, so I’m encouraging all Floridians to act now and be prepared if a major storm hits the Sunshine State. Recent Hurricanes Irma and Michael have shown us first-hand the devastation these storms can bring to our communities and it is important to ensure you are covered before a storm hits. Don’t wait until a storm is on the way, prepare now, Florida!”
