TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Hurricane season is just a few short weeks away and if you are not prepared, it is best to start getting ready.

Luckily, the City of Tallahassee is hosting a Neighborhood Prep Community Workshop Monday night for those wanting to be proactive.

The old saying 'better be safe than sorry' really applies to the hurricane season and the City of Tallahassee wants you to be prepared.

At Saint Peter's Anglican Church, participants will receive resources and information about what to do before and after a storm.

They will also get information on what should be going into their preparedness bucket.

"It's always best to be prepared than to get prepared during a storm," said Diane Williams-Cox, Tallahassee City Commissioner. "Personally we had to do somethings to get ready and I am glad that the City of Tallahassee is here able and ready to support us in whatever we have to do to make sure we have the resources necessary. Also lets come out and lets do this before the emergency. Let's have an urgency before hurricane season."

The workshop begins at 6:00 p.m. and runs until 8:00 p.m.

The city will host three more workshops ahead of the hurricane season which starts on June 1.
