Palm Beach County Participating in Statewide Hurricane Exercise

On Wednesday May 2, the Division of Emergency Management and partners will participate in the Florida Statewide Hurricane Exercise. The exercise will be held from 8:00 A.M. to Noon at the Emergency Operations Center (EOC), 20 S. Military Trail, West Palm Beach.

The exercise will involve several real time situations that occur during an activation of the Emergency Operations Center. This will exercise all aspects of operations at the center. Observers will be on hand to help assess the readiness of the participants. This exercise is just one of many held throughout the year to continually hone the skills of the county’s emergency team.

The EOC is located on the east side of Military Trail, just south of Southern Boulevard. For more information, please call 355-2754.
