2021 Storm Season FPL Voiceover Script

HURRICANE SEASON BEGAN EARLY FOR ABOUT 3,000 EMPLOYEES OF FLORIDA POWER & LIGHT COMPANY THIS WEEK.

F-P-L PERSONNEL JUST COMPLETED A WEEKLONG DRILL RESPONDING TO A SIMULATED CATEGORY 2 HURRICANE TO HELP PREPARE FOR THE ATLANTIC HURRICANE SEASON, WHICH OFFICIALLY BEGINS JUNE 1.

DURING F-P-L’S DRILL, THE FICTITIOUS HURRICANE LISA HIT DAYTONA BEACH WITH 110-MILE-PER-HOUR SUSTAINED WINDS, SLICED ACROSS THE STATE NEAR GAINESVILLE AND EXITED INTO THE GULF OF MEXICO. THEN THE STORM MADE A SECOND LANDFALL AS A CATEGORY 1 STORM IN THE PANHANDLE.

F-P-L CONDUCTS AN INTENSIVE HURRICANE DRILL EVERY YEAR TO MAKE SURE ITS EMPLOYEES ARE READY FOR STORM SEASON. EMPLOYEES RESPOND TO A NUMBER OF HYPOTHETICAL CHALLENGES THAT MAY OCCUR DURING A HURRICANE AND ITS AFTERMATH. FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW, F-P-L PERSONNEL WENT THROUGH THE EXERCISE WHILE OBSERVING COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS.

F-P-L ALSO SHOWED SOME OF THE CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY IT USES – INCLUDING DRONES AND SUBSTATION ROBOTS -- TO HELP RESTORE POWER SAFELY AND AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE AFTER A STORM.

WHILE F-P-L IS PREPARED FOR THE UPCOMING HURRICANE SEASON, THE COMPANY IS URGING ITS CUSTOMERS TO BE PREPARED AS WELL.
