2015-2016 Emergency Preparedness Guide  

Storm Season: June 1 - November 30

Hurricanes and tropical storms generally can be tracked days ahead of impact, providing ample time to prepare. However, these storms can quickly change direction, speed, and intensity. Make a plan to protect the people and things you value.

If a major storm causes an outage that affects your home or business, we will respond as soon as possible to restore your services. Please become familiar with the Emergency Preparedness Guide, published by the Duval County Emergency Management Division.

JEA is Prepared

Beginning in October 2013, JEA initiated a project to invest $17 million per year for three years to harden our electric system to better withstand impending hurricanes and tornadoes. The video below illustrates the storm hardening project which included inspecting 14,000 utility poles and clearing vegetation from 1,200 miles of power lines.


We also believe in the power of community. That’s why we have mutual aid agreements with utilities in Florida and Georgia to help work together to restore power after damaging storms. Learn more about mutual aid.
