Captain Hurricane Jack, also known as the "Hurricane Preparedness Pirate," sails the seven seas in constant search of hurricanes! He sails his ship, the Gale Force, with a motley crew of the world's most seasoned storm ready pirates to make sure all the people in Tampa Bay are prepared for a storm. 

Every home has to have a disaster supply kit, a family disaster plan and a severe weather radio when the pirates appear, OR ELSE! Only the most prepared can sail on the Gale Force with Captain Hurricane Jack and his crew. Are you ready to become a Preparedness Pirate?
