Escambia County will coordinate with the American Red Cross of Northwest Florida (ARC) to open hurricane evacuation shelters in phases based on public demand. The county and the ARC will NOT be opening all of the shelters at one time like in previous years. What this means for you:
Alert Escambia, a new emergency alert notification system, is now online and available for Escambia County residents.
Escambia County is asking everyone to take some time to prepare for the annual storm season. You can learn more about what you and your family need to do to prepare for this storm season by watching a video featuring Emergency Managment Director John Dosh.
The State of Florida recognizes the week of February 2 through 6 as Severe Weather Awareness Week and Escambia County Emergency Management is encouraging you to learn more about the potential weather hazards that threaten our area.
As Escambia County faces low temperatures this week, it is important to prepare your family, pets and home for winter weather.
