BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA — The city’s annual Hurricane Expo in partnership with IHeart Media, is planned for Saturday, May 30 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. on the lawn at the Palm Bay City Hall, located 120 Malabar Road SE.
Once again WFTV Chief Meteorologist Tom Terry will be in attendance answering questions, taking pictures with fans and sharing important preparedness information about the upcoming storm season and other storm stories.
Terry will be based at the police Unified Command response vehicle and will be alongside more than 50 public safety related vendors and public safety experts.
Participants include the American Red Cross, Brevard County Emergency Management, the National Weather Service, Salvation Army, 211 Brevard and many others.
Local retailers and food vendors like Texas Roadhouse, Chic-Fil-A, Soprano’s Pizza and others will have free giveaways including food and non-alcoholic beverages.
“The Hurricane Expo is always a fun and informative event,” said Police Chief Mark Renkens.
“We started this event in 2005 and every year it has grown. The idea is to get as many people to attend so they can learn about preparedness and get to know the people that provide public safety products, services and information.”
During the event, IHeart Media will be giving away two tickets to the Taylor Swift concert to be held on October 31 in Tampa.
Register at the IHeart Media tent near the Expo’s main stage. Other door prizes will be given away during the event including restaurant and retail gift cards and other hurricane safety related items.
The event is free and open to the public.
