Register for this event at Registration closes Thursday, July 28 at noon. Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. 

This interactive event will feature hands-on activities and demonstrations to place critical disaster preparedness information front of mind as the 2022 Atlantic Hurricane Season heats up. Citizens who attend the event will have a chance to leave the session with critical disaster preparedness supplies, such as a weather radio and a hurricane preparedness starter kit. 

Leon County will convene nonprofit partners, preparedness experts, public safety officials, and other community members to discuss building community preparedness and resilience in response to both man-made and natural disasters. The upcoming session will cover topics such as what to include in a disaster preparedness bucket, who to call in an emergency, and the importance of having a plan for your home. 


Leon County

Since 2017, Leon County Government has implemented more than 500 citizen ideas to improve programs and services for Leon County residents.  Citizens have submitted bright ideas like:

  • Adding a button to translate the County’s Emergency Information Portal website to keep citizens of any language proficiency informed during a disaster.

  • Creating a “Help My Pet” sticker to assist first responders in contacting a pet caretaker when the owner cannot be reached.

  • Declaring Florida Emancipation Day as a County holiday.

  • As a pilot program, installing three electric vehicle charging stations at the Main Library and Eastside Branch Library.

  • Transferring surplus Leon County EMS ambulances to Lively Technical Center to be used for training in the Diesel Truck Maintenance Program.

All of these suggestions came from citizens like you and are now implemented in Leon County!
