KISSIMMEE — With the start of the 2022 Atlantic Hurricane Season approaching, Kissimmee Utility Authority released its 2022 Osceola Hurricane Handbook, a free, bilingual, comprehensive preparedness guide offered annually to Osceola County residents.
A partnership between KUA, Osceola County, the cities of Kissimmee and St. Cloud, Toho Water Authority and UF IFAS Extension in Osceola County, the handbook includes information on emergency shelters, evacuation routes, generator safety and power outage restoration as well as helpful telephone numbers, a disaster supplies checklist and a tropical cyclone tracking chart.
The handbook can be downloaded in English and Spanish from KUA’s website at www.kua.com/storm. Printed copies of the bilingual handbook are now available in our Carroll Street lobby.
“We are so pleased to provide this free resource to the community to assist with their storm preparations every year,” said KUA President and General Manager Brian Horton. “As you work on your plan, rest assured that KUA is doing the same. We have a team of nearly 300 highly skilled employees ready to respond to severe weather at a moment’s notice.”
