6 community outreach dates set for 2020

January 2, 2020 – Flagler County’s departments of Fire Rescue, Emergency Management, and Growth Management are hosting six community outreach events in 2020 to provide information about the various programs and services available to residents. Representatives from the Florida Forest Service will also attend to discuss wildfire mitigation and fuel reduction.

The first open-house style event in the series will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. January 11 at Fire Station 41 in The Hammock – 5593 N. Oceanshore Blvd. 

“This community outreach is designed to give residents the opportunity to meet Fire Rescue firefighters working at their neighborhood firehouses (stations),” said Fire Marshal Jerry Smith. “Our crews are very proud of their firehouses.”

Residents can also see the equipment used by the Florida Forest Service. Flagler County Emergency Management will provide storm and disaster preparedness information, and register attendees for ALERTFlagler notifications. Growth Management staff will provide information about flood zone construction, and permitting requirements.

“Of course, I will provide information about home fire safety inspections, and smoke detector battery exchange,” Smith said. “We will also answer questions about Community Paramedicine.”
