In The Spotlight at Brevard County Emergency Management

Hurricane Joaquin is well offshore, but dangerous swells are requiring surfer rescues. Beach warning flag is red; will be double-red this weekend. Enjoy the beach, but due to extremely dangerous surf conditions, swimming and surfing are strongly discouraged.



Disaster strikes anytime and anywhere. It takes many forms -- a hurricane, a tornado, a flood, a fire or a hazardous spill, an act of nature or an act of terrorism. It builds over days or weeks, or hits suddenly, without warning. Every year, millions of Americans face disaster, and its terrifying consequences. Quite often, Brevard County residents become affected by these events.
The Emergency Management Office is an independent office of the county government, reporting to the Board of County Commissioners through the County Manager. 


To provide Brevard County residents, businesses and industries, non-profit organizations, and local governments the education and support necessary to reduce the loss of life and human suffering; to minimize property damage; and to protect environmentally sensitive areas from all types of disasters through a comprehensive, risk-based, all-hazard emergency management program.
