Governor Ron DeSantis Activates Florida State Guard in Preparation for Severe Weather Expected This Weekend

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.  Today, Governor DeSantis activated the Florida State Guard to assist the Florida Division of Emergency Management and other state agencies ahead of the Gulf Low expected to impact Florida this weekend.

 

The Florida State Guard plays an essential role in Florida’s preparation for and swift response to severe weather,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “We thank them for their willingness to mobilize on short notice as we prepare for potential severe weather impacts this weekend.”

 

Governor DeSantis has also directed the Florida Division of Emergency Management to prepare flood response and prevention equipment and instructed Floridians to plan for flooding, strong wind gusts, and isolated tornadoes.

 

The Florida State Guard, a civilian volunteer force, was re-established by Governor DeSantis in 2022 and activated by the Governor for the first time in more than 75 years in response to Hurricane Idalia.
