Pembroke Pines Prepared - Hurricanes
Why be prepared? Throughout the year, the City of Pembroke Pines provides hurricane preparedness information to ensure the safety of residents, businesses and property through a variety of channels, including but not limited to, this website, City Connect, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, NextDoor, Pines Media TV on Comcast Channel 78 and U-verse Channel 99, and through our relationships with local media.
While Hurricane Season is June 1 to November 30, it is critical for everyone in South Florida to always be prepared and aware of weather events that can impact the state. Please visit and scroll down through all the hurricane prep pages, but most especially our Resource page for helpful information you can print or download. Should a hurricane occur, a special page will be created here for all updates. Check out our Pembroke Pines Prepared Flyer. Pembroke Pines Prepared Flyer (Spanish)

Please put 954-565-9571 in a convenient location so it can be accessed easily when needed.
