The City of Dunedin wants to keep its residents safe.  If a disaster were to hit today, would you be ready?  Please become familiar with the following which will help you become prepared.

KNOW YOUR ZONE!  In order to know when and where to evacuate, you must KNOW YOUR ZONE!  Follow this link to Pinellas County Emergency Management to find your Evacuation Zone.  When an alert comes over the radio, television or through the City's warning system, you can make plans for you and your family's safety. 

INSURE YOUR PROPERTY!  Anywhere it rains, it can flood.  Homeowner's insurance policies do not cover losses due to flooding.  NFIP is available in Dunedin.  Flood insurance is mandatory for federally backed mortgages on buildings located in the special flood hazard area.  Contacting a local insurance agent or lender for details is suggested.  Be aware that there is a 30-day waiting period before coverage goes into effect - so don't delay.

Visit or call toll-free, (888) 379-9531 for information on policy rates and coverage.

Also featured below is a link to information provided by Pinellas County on "Surviving a Storm" of major winds or hurricane.  Be prepared!

During the flood:

  • If flood waters threaten to enter your house, turn off electricity at main circuit box
  • Stay on higher ground; do not attempt to wade in waters above your knees
  • Do not drive on a flooded road

After the flood:

  • Do not return to your home until officials give the "all clear"
  • Do not eat food that has come into contact with flood water and drink only bottled or previously stored water
  • Stay away from disaster areas
  • Do not handle live electrical equipment:  report downed power lines, road obstructions, etc.

PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY!   Elevate your utilities (water heaters, A/C units) and implement floodproofing techniques.  Visit or contact Pinellas County Flood Information Services at (727) 464-7700.  Staff are available to provide in person property protection consultation and drainage evaluations.

Emergency floodproofing measures:

BUILD RESPONSIBLY!  Find out what permits you may need, plan for proper drainage, and be aware of the substantial improvement rules.  You can speak with the City of Dunedin's Certified Floodplain Managers:

PROTECT NATURAL FLOODPLAIN FUNCTIONS!  "Only Rain Down the Drain"  Keep lawn clippings, leaves and other debris out of streets and storm drains; Do not dispose of yard debris in ditches, wetlands, ponds or streams; Do not fill a floodplain.  Floodplains lessen the effect of flood and storm waters and provide natural storage areas for flood waters.
