PINELLAS COUNTY — The time to put your survival plan into action is when forecasters predict a hurricane is headed toward Pinellas County.
If you don’t have to evacuate and plan to weather a hurricane at home, set up a safe room for you and your family in case your home is damaged.
Where your safe room should be located depends upon how many levels are in your home or building.
If you are not ordered to evacuate, complete your preparations and head to your home’s safe room.
If you live in an ordered evacuation zone, you should already be at your safe place (host home, hotel or shelter).
