Hurricanes and Horses

The Town of Davie is proud of its rural character and equestrian lifestyle. Davie is home to thousands of horses and we want to help you keep them safe in the event of a hurricane.

No one can guarantee where your horse will be safe. The decision is yours. If you cannot make your property safe because of the condition of the barn, trees, power lines, low lying land prone to flooding, or the general condition of the neighboring properties, plan on evacuating your horse at least 48 hours before the storm.

Preparing for Your Horse's Needs:

  1. Do's and Don'ts
  2. Advanced Preparations
  3. Before a Storm
  4. After the Storm
  5. First Aid Kit
