Be Ready Florida

The Be Ready Alliance Coordinating For Emergencies (BRACE) has undertaken and effort to engage homeowners throughout the state to take the time to prepare their home for the next disaster by participating in a series of informative workshops.

These workshops are designed to provide homeowners with the knowledge and skills to assist them in mitigating future disaster caused damage to their most valuable asset, the home they live in.

What Does Mitigation Mean? According to FEMA mitigation is the effort to reduce property damage and loss of life by lessening the impact of future disasters. Most Floridian’s mitigate property damage and the loss of life due to a residential fire by having a simple device known as a Smoke Alarm placed throughout their home.

The Be Ready Florida initiative takes mitigation to the next level by providing the knowledge homeowners need to mitigate the effects of hurricanes, floods, wildfires and the other disaster that threaten Floridians throughout the year.
