With Hurricane Irma looming in the gulf, Chief Ron Tyler and our Command Staff are actively planning and preparing to keep our community and those who evacuate to our area safe over the coming days. As conditions, tracks, and forecasts change we will update you with potential impacts. As of now, we anticipate sustained strong winds and rain to enter our area Monday and Tuesday. However, this is subject to change as Irma interacts with warm gulf waters. For those in our area in need of assistance as this storm approaches, or who are in our area as a result of evacuation orders from other states, please call 2-1-1. The 2-1-1 system is here to provide resources for you and your family. Please stay weather aware during this tropical event.
