With Hurricane Irma forecast to hit Florida starting on Friday evening, our offices will be closed on Friday September 8 to allow everyone here to complete preparations. We hope that all of you in Polk County have had the opportunity to do the same. Please stay safe and vigilant. While tracking models are showing it bouncing more to the east coast, there is no certainty until Irma finally makes a turn northward.
If you have already prepared, please try and stay off roads to allow those who are under mandatory evacuation notices the opportunity to move as quickly as possible to their destinations. Hopefully at this point all of us have full gas tanks as well. We should do our best to stay out of gas stations for the same reason as staying off of roads - to give those evacuating right of way to fuel and get to their destination.
We will be taking next week day-by-day as far as our shop being open. It does look like Monday we will be closed and we'll make updates as we can on our Facebook page.
Stay safe everyone!
