NR 19-31 Sandbag Locations for Citizen Pickup

August 30, 2019 - 10:18 am Author: Category:

The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office along with our Public Safety partners continue to monitor the storm projections of Hurricane Dorian.

As a result of the potential impact to Brevard County, the Sheriff’s Office will continue distributing sandbags (at no cost) to our citizens, today and Saturday, at four different locations throughout Brevard County.

In an effort to expedite the process, we will be using inmate labor to fill and load the sandbags directly into our citizen’s vehicles at the four different locations. This will be conducted under the supervision and direction of Sheriff’s Office employees. Each vehicle can obtain up to 10 free sandbags so they can help prepare their homes and businesses for potential flooding.

The four locations respective to the specific day will be open for distribution beginning at 8:00 A.M. and will continue distributing through 7:00 P.M. or until supplies are gone.
