Emergencies can occur at any time and the safety of law enforcement, fire fighters and emergency medical personnel depend on the quality and accuracy of information obtained  from citizens who call the Flagler County Communications Center.
     Public Safety Telecommunications are the first and most important contact our citizens have when an emergency occurs and help is needed.  The Flagler County Commission realizes that Public Telecommunicators in the Communications Center have contributed substantially to the apprehension of criminals, suppression of fires and the treatment of patients. 
     The Flagler County Commission proclaimed the week of April 13 through April 19 as National Public Safety Telecommunications Week in Flagler County in honor of the men and women whose diligence and professionalism keep our county and citizens safe.

Flagler County recognizes the importance of parents talking to their teens about alcohol. The majority of teens say that their parents are the primary influence about drinking and alcohol. It has been reported that alcohol kills 4,700 people a year in the U.S., more than all other illegal drugs combined. This year Mothers Against Drunk Driving will kick off 21 Days in Support of 21 beginning on April 1 in order to create a sustained national conversation about underage drinking.
     The Flagler County Commission proclaimed April 21 as Power Talk Day 21 in Flagler County and urges citizens to join in the efforts to raise awareness of the importance of parents and teens talking about alcohol to reduce the risks and dangers poses to teens.
