Brevard County Emergency Management

We hope that your visit here will help you better understand the various aspects of Emergency Management, the three divisions of the Emergency Management Department, and what it is we do to assist you as members of our community in the event of disaster.

Please take the time to familiarize yourself with the information we have provided on this site. In the event of an actual emergency situation, your knowledge of what to do will be of great benefit to you and your family.

WhatWeDo

What We Do

Brevard County Emergency Management is responsible for the disaster preparedness of our residents; communication and coordination of emergency services before, during, and after a disaster; development of contingency and preparedness plans; and providing education on how to prepare for and reduce the effects of disasters. Emergency Management is an independent department of the county government, reporting to the Board of County Commissioners through the County Manager's Office.

Our Mission

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.

AlertBrevard Notifications

If you register phone numbers and / or email addresses with AlertBrevard, you can receive automated notifications about boil-water notices, shelter-in-place or evacuation orders, law enforcement activity, etc. for your area.

These are based on the address you provide, such as your home, business, or elderly parent's home. You may choose a telephone call, text message and / or email delivery methods.

To register, click on "Alert Signup" using the blue task bar above.

This system is used by emergency management, the sherrif's office, and local police and utility departments.

Wireless Emergency Alerts

These are sent to your cell phone and bounce off the cell towers only in a certain / affected area for:

Weather-related alerts issued by the National Weather Service

Amber Alerts (missing children) issued by law enforcement

Other imminent threats to life or safety issued by Emergency Management

Alerts issued by the President

These alerts look like a short text message and have a unique tone and vibration; you do not need to sign up for them; they are automatically enabled. All cell phones with Wireless Emergency Alerts enabled will receive alerts issued for the designated area, per their GPS location, even if they are visiting from another area.

Text message (text BREVARDEOC to 888777)

NextDoor is also utilized by Brevard County Emergency Management to notify the public of immediate threates to their safety. Because everyone in Brevard County who signs up for NextDoor automatically receives our posts, we use it sparingly.

With social media, you'll see emergency messages, Emergency Operations Center activations (often due to space launches), general preparedness tips, and information about major road closures and prescribed burns. These are not based on your location.

Be Prepared

Preparation is a year-round activity, and you can help those around you be prepared in the event of a disaster, by following these steps.

Types of Hazards

The first step to understanding risk in our community is to learn about the potential hazards.
