Miramar FD to conduct hurricane preparedness training exercise this month.

It's June and the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season is officially underway. As most of you already know, hurricane season runs from June 1st to November 30th. To make sure we are prepared, we at Miramar FD will be conducting an internal training exercise with other city departments this month.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has predicted a “quiet” hurricane season, suggesting that nine tropical storms will form. Of the nine storms, three are expected to become hurricanes, one of which is expected to become a major hurricane (Category 3, 4, or 5, or with winds of 111 mph or higher).

The recent heavy rains are a reminder of nature’s power and unpredictability. It is for this reason that we must continue to prepare our City to respond to these type of events. The Fire-Rescue Department, Division of Emergency Management, is taking steps to ensure that we as a City have the tools and training necessary to mitigate and manage these threats.

Remember, it only takes one major hurricane to cause considerable damage. It's also important to remember that hurricane impacts are not limited to the coastline – strong winds and rain can cause flooding and damage hundreds of miles from the coast.

The following are the names for the 2014 storm season are Arthur, Bertha, Cristobal, Dolly, Edouard, Fay, Gonzalo, Hanna, Isaias, Josephine, Kyle, Laura, Marco,
Nana, Omar, Paulette, Rene, Sally, Teddy and Vicky.
