HURRICANE IRMA GENERAL UPDATE – 9/8/17: As of current, there have been no mandatory evacuations in the areas of our communities. All communities have been in review of their Emergency Response Evacuation Plans with head personnel at their communities, as well as regional directors and company management. If a mandatory evacuation is announced, we have already examined, identified and have contacted locations should that need arise. All Florida-based regional directors have been in the field providing hands-on help at each community. We have arranged for additional non-perishable food and water since our plan is to shelter in place, unless otherwise directed by area officials. We have also implemented primary and secondary lines of communication for all communities so we can remain in contact with emergency personnel and area officials. We ask that you please do not call the community directly for updates, as we need to keep these lines open and clear for emergencies. Please utilize Facebook or the communities’ websites for all updates.
UPDATE 9/7/17: Like many of you, we are tracking the storm’s movement and we have already begun implementing our individual community’s County Approved Disaster/Emergency Preparedness Plan. These Emergency Preparedness Plans are specific to each community’s county and emergency management area. We have had continual calls with all of our Florida-based communities. Most preparations are in place already, including such items as; basic needs, food, water, emergency supplies, backup power/generators and fuel. We have been communicating with all residents, as keeping everyone informed is a critical part of this process. Team members are prepared to stay at the communities to ensure the safety of our residents. We will continue to closely monitor this storm and its path, as well as remain in contact with area emergency personnel. At this point in time, we will shelter in place.
