The City of Nassau Bay Office of Emergency Management offers a variety of services and information to help better prepare you and your family in case of an emergency.

Sign Up for Nassau Bay's Emergency Alerts

Nassau Bay's Emergency Alert system allows City Officials to quickly send alerts via phone, email, or text message directly to residents and businesses. These alerts help keep you informed and safe in the event of emergency situations, including: severe weather, road construction, water issues, etc. Sign up and learn more.

Emergency Supplies

Keep enough supplies in your home to survive on your own, or shelter in place, for at least three days. If possible, keep these materials in an easily accessible, separate container or special cupboard. You should indicate to your household members that these supplies are for emergencies only. Check expiration dates of food and update your kits when you change your clock during daylight saving times. During hurricane season, keep at least half a tank of gas in your car at all times. Rethink your needs every year and update your kit as your household changes. 

Ready America is a great resource to help you build a supply kit, make a plan, and be informed.

Evacuate immediately if told to do so. Listen to your battery-powered radio and follow the instructions of local emergency officials. Wear protective clothing and sturdy shoes. Take your disaster supply kit and lock your home. Learn about local hurricane evacuation routes and always travel routes specified by local authorities. Don't use short cuts because certain areas may be impassible or dangerous.
