May 3 Proclaimed “PuroClean Day” in Tamarac

Recently, Mayor Michelle J. Gomez presented a proclamation to PuroClean. According to the City, “This Tamarac-based company is one of the fastest-growing restoration franchises in the country. In addition to providing services to those in need after a home flood or fire, they are a valuable employer and leader with numerous business achievements.

To recognize their success, May 3, 2021, is recognized as PuroClean Appreciation Day in the City of Tamarac.”

Reminder: Hurricane Season is Fast Approaching!

The beginning of hurricane season is June 1. Did you know that Broward County maintains a Vulnerable Population Registry? According to the County website, “You should pre-register in the Vulnerable Population Registry if you are at risk due to a disability, frailty, or health issue, regardless of age, AND you elect to stay at home in the event of a hurricane or other emergency. Registration should be in advance, and before a storm threatens. The Registry is used by municipalities for planning purposes only, and is not a guarantee of assistance. Register online, or by calling the Broward County Call Center at 311 or 954-831-4000 (TTY 954-831-3890), or by contacting your municipality’s emergency management agency.” Click here for Tamarac Emergency Management information.
