This morning, Friday, September 23, 2022, the Palm Coast-Flagler Regional Chamber of Commerce attended a briefing with local emergency management officials regarding the potential of a tropical storm/hurricane impacting Flagler County next week.
Although there is still much time to prepare for potential impacts, and a possibility of the storm’s track shifting away from our area, emergency management officials are urging Flagler County residents to take precautions now, while we still have the luxury of time. This includes purchasing or installing storm shutters (NOTE: Use chamber member Smart Guard Shutters), clearing debris from your property that could become airborne and purchasing supplies this weekend, before the storm potentially gets close.
Chamber President & CEO Greg Blose has extensive emergency management experience, as he was appointed by Florida Governor Rick Scott to the State Emergency Response Commission in the past and served for years in the Florida Emergency Operations Center as the business community’s representative. The Chamber will continue to monitor the potential for hurricane impacts to Flagler County in the coming days. Check back to our website for regular updates.
Last year, the Chamber offered a Business Continuity Workshop in partnership with Florida Power & Light and the Flagler County Emergency Management Department, which provided extensive guidance and training on how to help your business plan, prepare for and recover from a potential storm.
