Don’t get caught in the storm: Be prepared!

Bartow Police Chief Joseph Hall

We are merely a month into the hurricane season which started June 1. This year is predicted to be a very active season in the tropics for storms. In fact, as I am writing this article, we have a tropical storm brewing in the Atlantic with projections of coming close to the mainland of Florida.

For those of us who have lived in Florida all of our lives, chances are you have dealt with hurricanes before. If you live in Bartow, it was not so very long ago that you dealt with several, i.e. 2004. You don’t have to live on the coast to be affected … hurricanes can affect property deep inland with high winds, tornadoes and heavy rainfall. Now is the time to prepare.
