Hurricanes & Horses

The Town of Davie is proud of its rural character and equestrian lifestyle. Davie is home to thousands of horses and wants 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.

For Rescue After the Storm

Contact Broward County Emergency Operations Center at 954-831-3900.
