Disaster Planning Guides Help Thousands of Area Residents

Disaster Planning Guides containing evacuation maps, shelter updates and hurricane preparation tips have been distributed throughout Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee and Sarasota counties.

The Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council published the 16-page color guides, which are available at post offices, libraries and government buildings while supplies last. Spanish editions are available in Hillsborough and Sarasota counties. A digital version of each county’s guide is available at TampaBayPrepares.org.

Many Floridians think they know hurricane preparation basics such as having a flashlight, portable radio and plenty of nonperishable foods on hand. But these county-specific guides offer many more helpful instructions.

The Disaster Planning Guide is filled with crucial information and suggestions on evacuating, sheltering in place, pets, insurance and protecting your property.
