It’s anticipated that as many as 40 rockets will launch from the Space Coast in 2017.
Did you know that Brevard County Government is involved in each and every rocket launch? Brevard County’s Emergency Operations
Center is the most frequently activated EOC in Florida due to robust space launch activity at Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
As space tourism increases, reusability of launch vehicles improves, the return to human spaceflight is on the horizon, and a mission to Mars is planned, launch frequency continues
to escalate. Along with the exciting sights and sounds of launches (and now, landings) on the Space Coast, however, there are inherent risks,
which is why an activation of the EOC is required.
Brevard County Fire Rescue has implemented two major programs ProQA (Priority Dispatch) and the Squad Program. Both reduce fuel consumption, extend the life of emergency response vehicles and provide better,
safer emergency services to Brevard County residents.

The American Shore and Beach Preservation Association has announced that Brevard County's North Reach is a winner of its Best Restored Beach Award.
The North Reach, which includes the Cities of Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach, extends 9.4 miles between Jetty Park and Patrick AFB.
Restoration efforts on the once highly eroded beaches have exceeded expectations in the face of extraordinary storm events and helped turn a shoreline of
seawalls and rock revetments into one of wide beaches and flourishing dunes. Recovery projects implemented in 2005 and 2014 have helped sustain the
integrity of the project initially begun in the fall of 2000. The estimated $1.6 billion economic impact each year by Brevard's beach related tourism greatly exceeds the restoration costs.
It took less than 30 days to complete and finished 4 weeks ahead of schedule
but this time-lapse video of the Palm Bay Road Culvert Replacement Project captures the entire project in less than 7 minutes.
