Flagler College’s Department of Safety and Security monitors all potential tropical storms and hurricanes reported by the National Weather Service. When a storm is predicted to impact the areas in and around the city of St. Augustine, the Security Department, Crisis Management Team, Emergency Operations Team and Building Management Teams will all begin preparation of the campus for this severe weather.
