As we move into hurricane season, our community has already witnessed the devastating impacts that both health and natural disasters can cause. Martin County Emergency Management would like to help residents be prepared, no matter the threat. Now is the time for our residents to plan and prepare for a disaster, and we’ve created a guide to help you.
Road to Readiness
June 24, 2020 at 10:28 AM
Know if you are in an evacuation zone or not, and where you can go.
Assemble essential items to help your family in the event of an emergency. Include a face covering and hand sanitizer.
Determine where you would go if asked to evacuate – travel tens of miles, not hundreds of miles. Identify your family communication plan.
You can also register to recieve emergency notifications by phone, text, and/or email. To sign up, text ALERTMARTIN to 888777 or visit martin.fl.us/alertmartin.
Build a culture of preparedness to make Martin County a more resilient community. There are many ways to get involved so you can make a positive difference – volunteer, donate food or supplies or make a financial contribution.
Being prepared can reduce fear and increase resiliency from the impacts of disasters. Knowing what to do during an emergency and planning how you and your family will prepare, react and respond will keep you safe.
