HURRICANE DENNIS DISASTER PREPAREDNESS AND POSSIBLE SHUT DOWN
ARE YOU PREPARED? The FSLSO, along with the rest of Florida's Keys, West coast and Panhandle, is anticipating a Hurricane strike within the coming days.
First and foremost, be prepared to take care of your families, watch this storm and heed any and all warnings and evacuation postings.
Secondly, be sure you have plans in place to handle claims and other urgent matters. If your phone lines are inoperative, be sure to have alternative contacts in place and be sure your contact information for claims has been communicated to the FSLSO, i.e., name, phone numbers, fax numbers, cell phone numbers, email addresses, etc..., prior to the storm's impact.
Contact the FSLSO as soon as reasonably possible to let us know your situation and how we may be of assistance.
Currently, Dennis is predicted to affect the Florida Keys and West coast today and tomorrow and is predicted to strike somewhere along Florida's Panhandle late Sunday or early Monday morning. Because of the pending weekend occurrence, FSLSO will go into alert mode for this storm 48 hours before the predicted strike. As per our disaster preparedness procedures, upon 18 hours preceding the hurricane, FSLSO will stop accepting files in order to back-up our database. FSLSO will send an eNews to notify its submission contacts that operations have resumed.
Please communicate with the FSLSO as we will be able to communicate and assist your customers in the wake of a potential disaster. Thank you for your help!
