Protect Your Property

Protecting your property against storm damage can be costly, but history has taught us that reducing the impact of storm damage can save lives and property. The Florida Division of Emergency Management offers information about federal funding that may be available to Florida communities and individuals seeking assistance in mitigating storm-related property damage.

You also may want to include the following in your preparation plans:

  • Protect windows with shutters, plywood panels or other types of wind-resistant barriers.
  • Trim dead or weak branches from trees.
  • Maintain the exterior insulation-finishing system (EIFS), also referred to as synthetic stucco.
  • Reinforce double-entry doors and garage doors.
  • Secure siding and roofs.
  • Brace gable-end roof framing.
