June 1 marked the first day of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, and if you haven’t prepared yet, now is the time to do so. The Town has provided an excellent guide in the Citizen’s Guide to Emergency Preparedness, and Beaufort County has prepared a video on how to access the most reliable and up-to-date information. You can also sign up for the Sheriff’s Office NIXLE alert and advisory system, which links to Facebook and Twitter. An alert link will also be available for those who have not subscribed at http://www.bcso.net/ at the top left corner of the site.
In the event of an emergency or natural disaster, please look to your county and local government officials, along with trusted print, radio, and television media sources. For information specific to Palmetto Dunes, notifications will be sent via the Tidings and will also be posted on our website. We urge you to avoid information spread through social media unless it comes from a trusted source.
