What's New at Fire Rescue

Know your Zone!

The Miami-Dade County storm surge planning zones identify areas at risk for storm surge.

Based on the storm surge planning zone data each zone or portions will be evacuated depending on the hurricane’s track and projected storm surge, independent of the hurricane’s category.

Upon identification of a threat the EOC or County Mayor will use local media to relay pertinent information, such as evacuations and shelter openings. It is important that you monitor the news for this information.

Remember that these planning zones deal strictly with storm surge; you still need to determine if your home is safe to remain in during a hurricane.

Hurricane Guide

Take charge of your safety by making a hurricane plan ahead of time. Make arrangements for your pets and stock up on vital supplies and medications. We have put this Hurricane Guide together with tips to help you get ready.

Storm Surge Simulator

Miami-Dade County, in partnership with Florida International University, has created the Storm Surge Simulator, which combines historical data and modern day technology to illustrate what storm surge could mean to you and your home.

Storms are unique, and the factors that result from flooding and storm surge are too varied to be reliably predicted using this type of tool.

This website should not be relied upon to make decisions about protecting persons or property from flooding or storm surge, and should NOT be used to determine whether to evacuate.
