A Culture of Preparedness
Emergencies can and do happen, and we must be prepared for such situations at all times. As residents of the State of Florida, our greatest threat and one that receives the most attention is a hurricane. The potential exists, however, for us to experience other types of emergencies - in our individual homes, on a Town-wide, regional, or even a worldwide basis. The Town of Highland Beach, in conjunction with Palm Beach County Division of Emergency Management, is urging all residents to adopt and promote A CULTURE OF PREPAREDNESS. When it comes to being prepared for an emergency, we encourage Highland Beach residents to develop a year-round mindset. People who take personal responsibility for themselves and their families, and who are prepared in advance with a plan in place will be in a much better position to deal with an emergency, than those who do not plan ahead.
