Hello Everyone! My name is Samantha Dailey, and I am extremely excited to serve as the 2016-2017 FCA Sweetheart.

Make a Plan for Hurricane Season Now!

A special note from Adam Putnam: It’s barely been a week since the start of the 2016 hurricane season, and Florida has already experienced severe weather.
