Florida Public Radio Emergency Management Network (FPREN) is a collaboration of 13 public radio stations that provide pertinent information to 99 percent of Florida’s Florida evacuation route sign showing FPBS member station population during statewide emergencies. The network is equipped to remain on-air during hurricanes and other natural disasters, and provides LIVE statewide coverage of breaking news from the Governor’s EOC Headquarters in Tallahassee via broadcast and mobile apps.
WSRE is stronger than ever in both infrastructure and staffing and equipped to stay on the air even during times of massive power outages in order to deliver important information to you before, during and after an emergency.
In the event of a weather incident, we will continue to provide recovery information for as long as necessary. Working in partnership with the Florida Division of Emergency Management and our local Emergency Operations Centers, you can be assured of having access to the most up to date information.
