BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office along with other Public Safety partners continue to monitor the storm projections of Hurricane Irma.

As a result of the potential impact to Brevard County, the Sheriff’s Office began distributing sandbags (at no cost) to our citizens on Wednesday morning at four different locations throughout Brevard County.

In an effort to expedite the process, we are using inmate labor to fill and load the sandbags directly into our citizen’s vehicles at the four different locations.

This will be conducted under the supervision and direction of Sheriff’s Office employees. Each vehicle can obtain up to 10 free sandbags so they can help prepare their homes and businesses for potential flooding.

The four locations will be open for distribution at 8 a.m. and will continue distributing through 6 p.m. with services continuing during the same hours on Friday and Saturday or until supplies are gone.

THE FOUR LOCATIONS ARE:

NORTH BREVARD AREA: Chain of Lakes Park, 2300 Truman Scarborough Way, Titusville

MERRITT ISLAND AND BEACHES: Mitchell Ellington Park, 575 Hall Road, Merritt Island

CENTRAL BREVARD AREA: Calvary Chapel Church 2852 Fellowship Place Viera

SOUTH BREVARD AREA: Max K. Rhodes Park, 3410 Flanagan Avenue, West Melbourne

Hopefully the utilization of inmate labor and four different distribution sites will lesson wait time so that everyone can obtain their sandbags and return home as quickly as possible to prepare their residences for potential impact from Hurricane Irma.

Please continue to monitor the potential track of this major storm and take the necessary precautions to protect you, your family, your pets and your homes as we face another hurricane season together in Brevard County.
