SCU Prepares for Hurricane Irma



Dear Space Coast Families,


You will not hear us say "Go Storm" this weekend!

 

While the final path of Hurricane Irma through Brevard County is uncertain at this time, there is no doubt this is a very large and very powerful storm with the potential to cause significant damage across the state. GCF, BYSL, and NPL have already postponed this weekend's games.

 

First and foremost, we want all of our members, their families and friends to be safe. During a disaster, Brevard County Emergency Management website will display all of the latest information; http://www.brevardfl.gov/EmergencyManagement/Home.

News releases and information about news conferences and media briefings also will be posted here. You can sign up to receive these news releases via email at http://apps.brevardcounty.us/PublicInformationReleases/

Social media postings and text messages include information about prescribed fires, severe weather, accidents/incidents that impact major roadways or otherwise affect many people, and preparedness tips.

Before, during and after an emergency, residents may dial 2-1-1 to reach the Community Information Hotline.  The hotline is a partnership of Brevard County Emergency Management and 2-1-1 Brevard, a nonprofit 24-hour helpline. Specialists have the most up-to-date information on topics such as sandbags, evacuation routes and shelters, as well as how to get help after a storm. During Hurricane Matthew in 2016, 2-1-1 staff and volunteers answered almost 4,500 calls.

Residents of Brevard County can be notified about emergencies in their area through an automated call notification system. AlertBrevard is a primary tool used by Emergency Management to send important information to the public. However, call notifications go only to landline telephones unless other numbers are added to our database. If you rely on a cellular phone as your main telephone number, you are strongly encouraged to register your number here.

AlertBrevard is used by Brevard County Emergency Management, Utilities, and Fire Rescue to notify businesses and residents for public safety purposes such as hazardous materials incidents, wildfires threatening homes, boil water notices, and other emergency situations. The calls will provide specific instructions for people to follow in order to keep themselves and others safe.

The new and enhanced version of the Emergency Notification System also provides the opportunity to receive this information via email or text message. It also offers the option of a variety of weather notifications.

Be safe!
