Message from the Chief

                       
Fortunately, we missed the threat of a Tropical Storm during the first week back at school, but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen. It’s important for everyone to have an emergency plan, an emergency kit, and sign up for CodeRED.

CodeRED is a public emergency alert system used by the City of Hollywood and government agencies throughout the United States to notify residents through phone calls, e-mails and text messages to mobile phones or text pagers of an emergency in the community such as a hurricane watch or warning, flash flood warning, tornado warning, serious police situations, and other critical events. The service is free to the public. Text message fees by your wireless carrier may apply depending on your mobile phone plan.

Here’s a basic Emergency Kit that you should prepare before the storm hits.            
  • One gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
  • At least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
  • Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  • Manual can opener for food
  • Local maps
  • Cell phone with chargers, inverter or solar charger

As cases of Zika in South Florida are on the rise, it’s more important than ever to do what we can to take precautions.
          
Floridahealth.gov reminds people to Drain & Cover

Whether you’re staying at home or traveling abroad, preventing mosquito bites is the best way to reduce the risk of mosquito-borne disease. Mosquitoes can be found in many different environments and you may not always notice when you have been bitten. Mosquito activity in Florida can be year round. The following are some steps that can be taken to help prevent mosquito bites.

DRAIN: water from garbage cans, housegutters, pool covers, coolers, toys, flower pots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected.

DISCARD: Old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that aren't being used.

EMPTY and CLEAN: Birdbaths and pet's water bowls at least once or twice a week.
          
PROTECT: Boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that don't accumulate water.

MAINTAIN: The water balance (poolchemistry) of swimming pools. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. Repair broken screens on windows, doors, porches, and patios.

CLOTHING: If you must be outside when mosquitoes are active, cover up. Wear shoes, socks, long pants, and long sleeves.

REPELLENT: Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, para-menthane-diol, and IR3535 are effective. Use netting to protect children younger than 2 months.
