Important Resources

 

If communications such as radio, television or newspapers are available, information on where to receive assistance will be listed through those sources following a hurricane. Emergency managers will designate a safe location where to disseminate information and resources where necessary. In case all communications fail after a hurricane, City public safety personnel along with CERT volunteers will disseminate information via flyers into the neighborhoods.
