Hurricane Preparedness

Hurricane season is here, and Supervisor Ed Romaine reminds residents that the 2019 Hurricane Survival Guide is now available.

Hurricane Guide


The guide is designed to help residents prepare for a hurricane and other severe weather incidents. It covers preparations and procedures for virtually every hurricane scenario and includes hurricane surge maps which are useful in understanding how different areas might be impacted by hurricanes of varying intensities.  There are also important phone numbers, lists, tips, a Family Disaster Supplies Kit check list, and tear sheets for use at home and at work.

Public Safety

Emergency Management

Public Safety is charged with administering the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) for the Town of Brookhaven and actively participates in all phases, including hurricane preparedness, hazardous material mitigation, and any and all natural or man-made disasters that may affect the township. 

The OEM is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hurricane Preparedness Program having personnel trained by the State Emergency Management Office (SEMO), National Hurricane Center (NHC) and the Suffolk County Office of Emergency Preparedness. During times of emergency, the OEM fully integrates with these agencies, as well as other entities public and private, in providing disaster relief, emergency evacuation, and transportation for dislocated residents. It is particularly sensitive to the special needs of the Barrier Beach (Fire Island) which invariably suffers the first and most extensive damage during hurricanes.
