Hurricane Season - Be Prepared!

Trim Trees and Shrubbery

Now is the time to trim trees and shrubbery, and remove coconuts. All vegetation is picked up in the City on a weekly basis. Having your property maintained before a storm will help to ensure that our Public Works Department will be able to assist all areas of the City during unexpected emergencies.

Dispose of Trash and Unwanted Household Items

Now is the time to get rid of unwanted items. Don’t wait until a hurricane is on its way before you empty out your garage to make room for vehicles.

Shelters or Evacuation Plan

Now is the time to form a family hurricane action plan. Lighthouse Point is in a mandatory evacuation area with Category 3 and above storms. Determine what hurricane plan you and your family will follow should the need arise, how your home will be secured, and where you will stay. The best place to stay is in a home which is outside of the evacuation zone and that has hurricane shutters, food, and supplies. As a storm is approaching DO NOT put out tree limbs, debris, bulk trash items, or clean out your garage to make room for vehicles. In previous years many residents waited until a hurricane was on its way before they emptied out their garages to make room for vehicles, and unfortunately had to bring their unwanted household items and trash back into their garages because there wasn’t enough time for trash collection.
