The Seminole County Board of County Commissioners launched a website to encourage all persons, businesses, and non-profit / faith-based organizations in Seminole County to prepare for all hazards. The "Prepare Seminole" campaign includes this preparedness website, and accompanying handouts, brochures, and public awareness displays. Natural and man-made disasters always take those affected off-guard. Unfortunately, most people don't think about the potential for disasters ahead of time. All citizens and guests should prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Research has shown that those who have prepared in advance fare better in the face of disaster than those who have not.
