The City has several new Boca hurricane communication methods in place to keep MBMoms and our families informed before, during and after a hurricane.
Boca Hurricane Communication
Through the Code Red Program, residents can receive text alerts or phone calls during an emergency. Evacuations, curfews and other important alerts will be sent through this Code Red system. Residents can sign up for Code Red alerts on the City’s website, www.myboca.us. They can also use the signup button on the City’s Facebook page: City of Boca Raton, FL Government.
Or click HERE.
The City also maintains a 24 hour staffed Citizen’s Information Hotline for Boca hurricane communication. This non-emergency number is for residents to call to share and receive information . It could be about business openings or closings, curfews, city services and other non emergency info.
The number to call is 561-982-4900.
For those with access to an AM radio, who are in the City limits, (the station has about a 3 mile radius) they can tune into AM 1650. The City also has a TV station – Channel 20 on Comcast within the City limits. There is also Channel 99 on AT&T U-verse in Palm Beach County. Both stations will broadcast weather updates and other important information.
While social media did not play a role during Hurricane Wilma in 2005, the City now has active Facebook and Twitter pages. By following the City of Boca Raton Government Facebook page and Twitter account @CityBocaRaton, as well as the Boca Raton Police Department’s Facebook and Twitter pages, residents will be able to interact with the City as long as there are connections available.
Additional Boca hurricane preparation guides and information can be found on the City of Boca Raton website at www.myboca.us.
Get prepared and stay safe MBMoms! Hopefully this and every other bad storm passes us by…
