Hurricane season starts June 1, which means it's that time of year again to stock up on essential supplies and develop a plan of action in the event a storm looks like it's headed to South Florida.

On Friday May 25, U.S. Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-20) and Alcee Hastings (FL-23) joined other federal, state and local government officials at the Broward Emergency Operations Center to discuss the combined roles that federal and local officials have before, during and after a hurricane.

Bill Read, the director of the National Hurricane Center talked about preparation efforts, along with Dr. Robert Atlas, the director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory. Col. William Beiswenger with Florida's Army National Guard and Sam Tidwell with the American Red Cross talked about volunteers and supplies on hand for helping in the event of a natural disaster.

Broward County and state officials briefed the Representatives on how local residents can prepare for the 2012 hurricane season and what they can do to protect their families.
