Under state law, Brevard County is responsible for ordering evacuations and ending evacuation periods. The City of Melbourne assists with evacuation activities. The Brevard County Emergency Management Office manages shelters, assists those with special needs, and offers preparedness information. Information Updates are available from Brevard County.
News outlets as well as the NOAA weather radio channel should be monitored for current news. State bulletins will be on public radio stations. Citizens can also seek Brevard County information by calling 211.
If conditions warrant, the City activates an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at a police facility on Babcock Street. City operations are managed from the EOC until the hurricane threat no longer exists, or until recovery is completed.
When City Hall and other offices must be closed due to a storm threat or impact, a recorded message with advisory information will be available at (321) 608-6352 (608-MELB). Advisories will also be available on this page.
Telephone inquiries and reports should be directed to the Police Dept. Communications Center at (321) 409-2200, 409-2201, 409-2202, or 409-2203. Emergencies should continue to be reported with a 911 call.
