Welcome to the 2019 Hurricane season, and if you’ve forgotten what steps you should take to be prepared, fear not! Kissimmee Utility Authority has released its 2019 Osceola Hurricane Handbook, a free comprehensive preparedness guide offered annually to Osceola County residents.
A partnership between KUA, Osceola County, the cities of Kissimmee and St. Cloud, Toho Water Authority, UF IFAS Extension in Osceola County and Positively Osceola, the 40-page handbook includes information on emergency shelters, evacuation routes, generator safety and power outage restoration as well as helpful telephone numbers, a disaster supplies checklist and a tropical cyclone tracking chart.
The handbook can be downloaded from KUA’s website at www.kua.com/hurricane.
Printed copies of the handbook will be available beginning June 6 in the lobby of KUA’s customer service center, located at 1701 W. Carroll Street in Kissimmee.
