Hurricane Preparedness

9-1-1 is ONLY for Emergencies

During and following a storm ONLY contact 9-1-1 for in-progress emergencies for police, fire or medical assistance. If you have an emergency:

  • Call 9-1-1, stay on the line and DON’T HANG UP until your call is answered.  Your call is in the system—if you hang up, and try to call back, your call is now in the back of the line.
  • Answer all questions and follow instructions
  • CALL IF YOU CAN, TEXT IF YOU CAN’T – ONLY TEXT 9-1-1 IF YOU CANNOT MAKE A VOICE CALL. Voice calls are the fastest and best way to reach
    9-1-1.

Finally, be sure to add charged cell phone and portables chargers to your preparedness kit.
