Emergency Preparedness

The Port of Pensacola works closely with the City of Pensacola, Escambia County, and the U.S. Coast Guard in order to respond effectively to potential disasters.

Individuals can prepare by building their own 72-hour hurricane or disaster supply kit. These kits include food, water, and essential supplies ready to take with you and your family when a disaster occurs.
