Palm Beach County Florida Sheriff’s Office Reaches Over One Million Residents Online in Preparation for Hurricane Dorian

Over the years, more than 500 tropical and subtropical hurricanes have impacted Florida, making it the number one state affected by hurricanes. Hurricanes hitting Florida have resulted in over 10,000 deaths since 1943. The cumulative monetary impact from the storms totals over US $216.1 billion in damages, primarily caused by Hurricane Andrew, Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Michael in the 1992, 2017, and 2018 seasons.

As Hurricane Dorian approached the Atlantic and made its way toward the east coast, Florida prepared for yet another category 4 hurricane. This time, residents were well prepared with access to resources, tips and information due to the ongoing efforts made by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Led by Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office utilized its social media channels and community access applications to provide residents with continuous hurricane updates and precautionary tips. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office held multiple live press conferences which were streamed across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Periscope, reaching over one million residents. Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office also provided updates to the community using an application called PBSO Connect & Protect App, as well as the Next-Door platform.

After Dorian passed, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office organized a committee tasked with checking on local senior citizens to ensure they were in good health and had everything they needed. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office has launched a campaign seeking disaster relief donations and support for the Bahamas in the wake of Dorian’s devastation.
