TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) – Leon County leaders meet at the new, state of the art public safety complex to present the annual hurricane survival guide.

The event marks the 2014 hurricane season kick off, which officially starts at the beginning of June.  This will be the first full hurricane season the new public safety complex will be used.

All emergency service operations will be housed in the complex, which can withstand a category three hurricane.

This includes the Leon County Emergency Management, 911 dispatchers, fire department headquarters and Tallahassee’s traffic department.

Kristin Dozier, Leon County Commission Chairperson, says, “As much as this public safety complex enables us to respond to emergencies in our community better, the best thing that anyone can do is be prepared before a storm." 

To prepare for the storm, city and county leaders are urging residents to get the “2014 Hurricane Survival Guide” which can be downloaded at www.haveahurricaneplan.com
