Before & After the Disaster: How Can the Clerk of Court Help?

be prepared image

June 1st marks the beginning of Hurricane Season.   Hurricanes, as we all know, are natural disasters with the potential of catastrophic consequences.  While disasters are not always avoidable, through diligent planning the Clerk of Court is prepared to minimize the impact on services if a disaster strikes. The Clerk has a comprehensive emergency management plan in place to ensure our ability to serve you within 72 hours depending upon the severity of the disaster.  Interlocal agreements guarantee alternate locations to conduct business should any Clerk office location sustain damage.  

Our office utilizes server redundancy offsite to protect all information and to safeguard continuity of critical operations. Continuity of Government operations and interlocal agreements are in place with judicial, local, and state government agencies to deliver timely assistance for all services that we provide to you.  

Living in Florida, we are most often prepared for the threat of a hurricane or severe weather event.  Be sure to include a certified deed to your property in your personal hurricane kit or an alternate safe place away from your home.  A certified copy of your recorded deed is substantive proof of ownership of your home and/or other property and is a requirement to apply for disaster assistance. 

The Clerk’s office continuously strives to deliver the highest level of quality customer service while keeping the public informed. In all emergency situations, including but not limited to, a pandemic, inclement weather, or natural disasters; we will post announcements on www.citrusclerk.org and our social media accounts (Facebook/Instagram/YouTube @CitrusCountyClerk).
