Join us for the annual FMEA Hurricane & Storm Preparedness Forum on April 30 and May 1 in Daytona Beach. Our Hurricane & Storm Preparedness Forum brings together public power utilities in Florida to share knowledge about keeping their customers safe and the power on during a severe weather event.

During the forum, Florida municipal electric utility employees share information and tips on how to prepare for and recover from a hurricane or severe storm in the state.
