As the Scouts say, “Be PREPARED”

The Marion County Emergency Management Center (aka Emergency Operations Center or EOC) has provided information on how to stay up-to-date and prepared for the possible impact from the tropical disturbance in the Gulf.

2-1-1 is here to help keep you posted and prepared!



Sandbags are available today, 8/30/16, and tomorrow, 8/31/2016, at various locations throughout the county.

Please contact 2-1-1 for the exact locations/times to pick up the sandbags.

(Most locations are self-serve, requiring a shovel to be needed)

You can also get up-to-date storm information via the radio! Check out what stations to tune into here.

Alert Marion

You can even sign up for emergency alert notifications that are sent directly to your phone through Alert Marion!

Let’s get prepared MARION!

2-1-1 is available 24/7 via phone (dial 2-1-1), text (zip code to 898-211), and live chat.
