FPL Reminds Time is Now for Hurricane Preparation


Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) is prepared for another potentially active hurricane season and reminds customers to make their preparations early.


“We urge customers to make their own hurricane preparations for their families and businesses so that if a storm heads toward Florida, they’re as ready as we are,” said Eric Silagy, chairman and CEO of FPL. “The actions we take today – before a hurricane is on our doorstep – will make a meaningful difference in how our communities recover after the next storm.” 


FPL advises business owners to establish a detailed hurricane plan that informs employees what they need to know before, during and after a storm. 


For tips and checklists for your business, be sure to review this fact sheet and visit for information covering everything from essential supplies to generator safety.
