A Message From Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey On Hurricane Irma
By WAYNE IVEY, BREVARD SHERIFF // September 5, 2017
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – As the potential impact of Hurricane “Irma” continues to be monitored by our agency and other Public Safety components in Brevard County, we are starting to receive a number of questions through social media regarding the distribution plan for sand bags and other safety measures to our citizens.
I would like to first request that everyone visit our website www.brevardsheriff.com for important information on how to prepare you and your family for the potential impact of a hurricane.
Our team is currently preparing to make sandbags available to our community should the storm continue on a path that threatens to impact our communities.
In an effort to better serve our citizens and expedite the process, this Hurricane Season we will use inmate labor to distribute sandbags at four (4) different locations throughout Brevard County. The areas will be geographically located in the North, South, and Central areas of the county.
As soon as the distribution times and locations are identified we will post them on our Facebook Page and website so everyone can take advantage of getting free sandbags to help protect their homes and businesses if that need should arise.
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.
If you have questions pertaining to Hurricane “Irma” or any future hurricanes that may impact our area please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of our Community Relations Unit will respond back as quickly as possible.
