Florida PSC to Receive Hurricane Preparedness Briefing from Electric Utilities and Emergency Management

TALLAHASSEE — Florida’s electric utilities and emergency management will update the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) on their storm preparation efforts on Thursday, April 20, 2017.

During the PSC’s Annual Hurricane Preparedness Briefing, the CEOs of Florida’s five investor-owned utilities and executives from the Florida Electric Cooperatives Association, the Florida Municipal Electric Association, and the Florida Division of Emergency Management will also discuss how customer needs are met during and after storm-related events, including restoration and communication efforts.

“With hurricane season beginning on June 1, our top priority is that the state’s IOUs are adequately prepared,” said PSC Chairman Julie Brown. “Demonstrating storm preparation begins at the top, and Commissioners want to hear about utilities’ hurricane preparedness plans for 2017, as well as any lessons learned from this past hurricane season.”

The briefing is scheduled for the following time and location:

Thursday, April 20, 2017
1:30 p.m.
Gerald L. Gunter Building, Room 105
2540 Shumard Oak Blvd.
Tallahassee, Florida
