When storms strike, FPL will be ready to respond with an experienced emergency preparedness organization. The purpose of the organization is to execute our comprehensive restoration plan. It was developed to be flexible and self-sustaining, and includes multiple sites, out-of-state crews and virtually all FPL employees. When storms threaten to strike, the organization is activated and active 24 hours a day until every customer has their service restored.
Storm Command Center
From this location, we manage the restoration efforts throughout FPL’s 35-county service area, working through various service centers and a number of staging sites. The command center serves as the brain of the operation, communicating restoration and logistics planning to our staging sites and service centers to best restore power to communities.
These working sites house the thousands of restoration and support personnel who are executing the restoration plan. These sites are pre-selected before the storm depending on the projected path of the storm. Arrangements are made to prepare the site to be self-sustaining with the necessary technology and logistics for restoration workers.
Similar to the staging sites, we use our own facilities to house hundreds of workers. However, due to the limited space at the service centers, we use staging sites to house the majority of our restoration personnel.
