Residents Safety Alerts
Please, for your safety, make sure you have enabled either the Town's Public Safety Department (PSD) "Code Red" Alerts found at the bottom of the main https://www.irspsd.org/ page, or IRC Emergency Management text alerts via this link. The PSD Code Red alerts (not Town News Alerts) may be issued for a missing person, a safety concern, a weather-related event, or for an important newsworthy item. The County's Alert Indian River system covers a broader area as an informational update service for all residents of the County.
For storm debris clean-up, consult your HOA, lawn care company or if you have Republic Service yard waste service, click here.
Keep storm drains clear of debris all year long! Make sure no leaves, sticks or other matter is blown or swept into the gutters or curbing.
During hurricane season, June 1 through November 30, we urge our residents to be aware of possible and impending storms that may impact our area.
