Be Prepared For Hurricane Season

With summer starting to hit its stride, it’s easy to forget about some of the dangers summer presents to digital billboards. This is especially true for digital billboard owners in states where this time of the year also coincides with hurricanes.

Digital billboards have become a key tool in delivering safety information to the public during these storms. While public safety is always a priority in situations like these, we also understand it is ideal to leave digital displays running as long as possible to provide weather conditions, evacuation routes and other important information. Over the years we’ve assembled a procedure to ensure your displays can be as helpful as possible during these events, but also protect your product.


While no-one can completely defend against mother nature, we’ve put together procedures to best ensure you and your display are prepared in the event of a hurricane.

Display Priority Spreadsheet

One of the more important things you can do for your own sanity is create a spreadsheet that contains a list of all your displays to track and prioritize hurricane preparation for each display. Make this spreadsheet easy to modify based on the hurricane path. This will allow you to quickly send information for multiple sites to Daktronics before a hurricane.

Include the following on your spreadsheet:

  • Contact information
  • Site address
  • Panel numbers/names
  • GPS coordinates

Follow this link to find a downloadable procedure list for displays with SmartLink and those without.

If you have any questions that are not addressed, feel free to contact your Account Service Manager and they will be more than happy to answer your questions.
