June marks the beginning of hurricane season here on the east side of of the Americas. Our company is based in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and we have offices in Puerto Rico; last year was devastating for us. ParagonMeds is a family owned business and we do our best to help the communities we are apart of.

South Florida

Last year we flew our Puerto Rican employees here to South Florida for shelter and to lift their spirits. We donated medical and pharmaceutical supplies to Puerto Rican aid relief; and we dealt with flooding, power outages, and hurricane force winds at our homes in Florida as well.

Businesses are only as good as the people within them working each day toward their shared vision and mission. We pray this season is not as severe as the last, but we of course prepare for the worst. That is what businesses do everyday, deal with the realities and try to make logical decisions based on data. Today is no different and as we head deeper into hurricane season, we use what we’ve seen to remind us of the realities and do our best to prepare for them.

Please prepare your homes and businesses for hurricane season.

If you or your organization helps deliver pharmaceuticals or medical supplies to areas in need for disaster relief please contact me.
