HURRICANE PREP

In 2017, Seventeen named storms, 10 hurricanes, and 6 major (Category 3 or stronger) hurricanes tore through the Atlantic Basin, well above the 30-year average of 12 storms, 6 hurricanes and 2 major hurricanes.

The YMCAs are positioned to serve their communities before, during and after a storm. However, to accomplish this service our Ys need to be prepared. 

The Florida YMCAs have designed a toolkit for CEO's & Emergency Preparedness Staff to prepare their Y's for hurricane season.
