KISSIMMEE, Fla., September 4, 1:15 pm – Spanish-speaking families in Osceola County can now receive hurricane preparation information in a free 8-page guide published by Kissimmee Utility Authority, Orlando Utilities Commission and the El Osceola Star newspaper.
The full-color guide is packed with important information on hurricanes and floods, plus helpful phone numbers, a disaster supplies checklist, and a hurricane tracking chart. Copies of the guide are available in the lobby of KUA’s customer service center at 1701 W. Carroll Street in Kissimmee. They can also be requested by telephone at (407) 933-7777, extension 1118, or by e-mail at hurricane@kua.com.
The guide will also be inserted in the September 13th edition of El Osceola Star which reaches approximately 10,000 Hispanic households in Osceola and south Orange counties.
“We don’t want language to be a barrier to good disaster planning,” said Chris Gent, KUA’s manager of corporate communications. “This guide gives Spanish-speaking residents the tools they need to put together an effective hurricane plan.”
KUA is Florida’s 6th largest community-owned utility and its 289 employees serve 58,000 electric, water and internet customers in four Central Florida counties.
