A Message From The Mayor - "In Case Of An Emergency"
Your village governments and departments continue to work on improving our ability to keep you safe in the event of a variety of emergencies. These efforts are especially important during the hurricane season. Please help us help you remain safe by being prepared and informed of current weather conditions. Materials on hurricane preparation and citizen actions are available at Village Hall and on the internet at : www.fema.gov. The following guidance is specific to our area. We thank you for your cooperation and assistance. ~Mayor Brian Gilbride
* Emergency information such as evacuation advisories will be broadcast over WLNG 92.1 FM and Channel 12 News.
* You may call the Village Office at 725-0222 with any questions.
WILL I NEED TO EVACUATE?
Storm surges are dependent on a variety of immediate conditions. If you reside in a flood plain there is a possibility you might be advised to evacuate. You will be advised as soon as possible if conditions warrant. Remember that once conditions worsen emergency personnel will not be able to reach you. Develop a family emergency plan and a communication plan.
WHERE DO I GO?
In the event of an emergency the Mayor will issue an Emergency Declaration and Pierson High School will be designated as a shelter. The shelter will not accept pets, so plan ahead with friends and relatives. If you have no choices we will try to help. In those cases the pet must be crated with necessary food and medicines packed.
WHAT DO I BRING?
Make sure to plan ahead and bring along all prescription drugs and personal convenience items.
