Residents - Storm Preparedness
The Harbor Pointe Board of Directors and its Hurricane Preparedness Committee have provided the following guidelines to assist you in preparing for the annual storm and hurricane season.
In the event of a hurricane, it may not be possible to contact Harbor Pointe by telephone to obtain a property damage update. However, special notices will be posted on the front page of the Association website at www.harborpointeFL.com. This will describe the status of the storm and contain pertinent notes on general damage.
Staff will not be available to answer specific questions or carry out tasks for individual condominium units, so it is important that you properly secure your unit for storm events prior to leaving for the season. The following information is not meant to be a complete storm/hurricane preparedness guide for you; it only relates to certain issues at our condominium.
You can obtain booklets on how to prepare for hurricanes from, among other places, CVS Pharmacies and the Publix grocery store.

Annual Preparedness Review
To be performed by the Property Manager and Board of Directors (as noted):
- Ensure that clear and concise instructions are posted near the Emergency Generator control panel on how to reset or otherwise control the Emergency Generator system (PM).
- Update and keep current the Storm Preparedness Information on the condominium website (BOD).
- Conduct training orientation for all new Directors and other involved persons as to all emergency procedures, including operation of the Emergency Generator, water shut-off valves, fire alarm systems, fire sprinkler system, pool pumps, and main electrical system controls and switches (PM).
- Develop and maintain check lists for securing the complex from potential flying debris, shutting down the pool systems, and securing all facilities (PM).
- Review the Harbor Pointe Hurricane/Storm Preparedness Plan of Action annually for appropriate revisions (BOD & PM).
- Establish a master contact list of board members, management personnel, and service vendors that can be used for storm preparation and mitigation. This list should be concise with name of vendor contacts and phone numbers (PM).
