Jupiter Farms, YOUR community has its very own podcast. The Jupiter Farms Residents PODCAST! Of course, JFR has monthly community meetings, and we regularly interact on our Facebook page and there's also our e-Newsletter. Yet we keep hearing from people wanting to hear MORE about our community. To answer that, we’ve decided to do a monthly podcast to keep you even more informed about what’s going on in "The Farms." Sure, we’ll hit all the basics, “When is the hoedown?” “When do the Christmas Trees go on pre-sale?” “When is the next meeting?” – but we hope to bring you a lot more. Many times, an email or a post can get missed – our messages have a lot of competition out there, so we want to meet you where YOU are - and for most of us that’s on our mobile phones.So, whether you’re an experienced podcaster or not quite sure where to get them – don’t worry. If you’re reading this, you’re in the right spot. Just hit the subscribe button wherever you got this podcast and you’re good. Every episode we release will come to you absolutely free.Thanks for listening!

Hurricane Season 2022 - Are you ready?
Okay, okay, last year's hurricane episode was for the old timers but this year we have many, many new residents (even new folks from other places in Florida) that might not know what to expect in terms of how the Farms reacts to major hurricane forces. This is the episode for you because we have our local treasure Janet Burfield the President of C.E.R.T. the Jupiter Farms Community Emergency Response Team to tell us what we need to know as hurricane season 2022 is upon us. Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is in partnership between Homeland Security and the public.  CERT became a national program in 1993.  CERT prepares volunteers for disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact our area.Jupiter Farms CERT is a 501 © (3) not for profit organization.  We meet 3 times per year with no dues.  Our next meeting is June 14th at 7 pm at the Jupiter Farms Park Pavilion.  We are active at sharing information about storms developing and those that may strike our area with pertinent information before and after a storm.  Hurricane Season runs from June 1st to November 30th.  This may change as storms have been developing earlier in May for the past 6 years.Email C.E.R.T.  jfcert@yahoo.comNext Meeting – June 14th (Tuesday) @ 7 p.m. at the Jupiter Farms Park PavilionHurricane Tracking Information WebsitesNational Hurricane Center (NHC) http://nhc.noaa.govWeather Predication Center (WPC) http://wpc.ncep.noaa.govWeather Underground www.Wunderground.com/hurricaneHam Radio Information: Bert Moreschi – JTRG President Email - Aug77@att.netHam Radio testing is available throughout the year.  Please contact Bert for more information and testing dates. Governor DeSantis signed a tax relief bill in early May.  Be sure to research these tax holidays for their limitations.  Some of the upcoming tax relief programs are:The Disaster Preparedness tax holiday runs from May 14 until August 14th.  Reinforce Your Home tax break on impact resistant doors, windows, and garage doors for a 2 year period beginning July 1st.The Atlantic Hurricane Season is projected to be above normal season similar to the 2021 Hurricane Season.  This will be the 7th year in a row for a more active season.  We are under a La Nina influence as far as water temperatures.  After a storm passes our area, please use extreme caution when going out in your yard.  There most likely will be standing water which could have live power lines, snakes, red ant piles and other things that you won’t want to step on.  More deaths are caused after storms than during a storm from careless actions.  So be prepared ahead of the storm season, stay inside during the storm, and be extremely careful venturing outside of your house after a storm.  If you feel safe, please check on your neighbors to make sure they weathered the storm safely.Be weather wise and alert!Support the show
