The following information is for your use, in preparing for a disaster, during a disaster, and after a disaster. Should a disaster strike Okeechobee County we must be prepared for events caused by nature and/or humans. The warning to us may be days as with a hurricane or with no warning at all as with an industrial accident which would require an immediate evacuation of a particular area within the county, or the whole county.
Emergency information will be broadcast on local radio and television stations. The radio stations are WOKC-FM 100.9, WOKC-AM 1570, and WWFR-FM 91.7 in Okeechobee, WQCS-FM 88.9 in Fort Pierce, and WAFC-FM 100.5 in Clewiston. The television stations are Channels 5 and 25 from West Palm Beach, and the local cable station.
Any organization which would like to have a presentation by the Okeechobee County Emergency Management Office concerning hurricanes, tornados, flooding, terrorism, hazardous materials or Disaster Preparedness in general should call Mitch Smeykal at (863) 763-3212.
