Hello Bulls!

In preparation for hurricane Irma, here are some helpful tips to assist you:

  • Pull out cash from ATM in case of power outages and for emergency purposes.
  • Charge any portable chargers for laptop or cell phone use.
  • Fill up gas tank.
  • Purchase water, canned food items, and non perishables.
  • Purchase batteries, candles, flash lights, first aid kit, and a battery operated radio.
  • Make sure you have any medications you may need filled in case of store closures.
  • Protect and secure all important documents.
  • Plan to have an emergency evacuation route in case of potential flooding or emergency.
  • Make a family emergency plan.

As always, please remember to stay safe and check the USF main page to verify potential school closure dates.

Take care, Bulls!
