- Every now and then you might see a hydrant flowing water, believing something is wrong. That could be true, but odds are the hydrants are being flushed of sediment so you have the great, fresh water we enjoy here in the City. If you like, you can contact Utilities Customer Service at 321-952-3420.
- The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) sponsors "take back" events at different times during the year. These events are publicized via TV, radio, Internet, etc. We will make every effort to post any information about upcoming "drug take back" events on the police and fire webpages as well as the events calendar. If you choose, you may go to the FDA's website, http://www.fda.gov for more information regarding this event.

If a patient is transported to the hospital in the ambulance, may a family member accompany the patient in the ambulance?Yes. You are usually seated in the front ambulance seat so the EMTs and paramedics have ample room to assist the patient.
- Take the following steps:
- Leave a buffer zone of cleared land between your home and the wild land area of vegetation and wild growth. The recommended space is 30' of cleared land. Keeping cleared land, with little or no vegetation, around your home gives the fire less fuel to feed on, which can lead it to the house.
- Keep trees trimmed away from your home. This, too, can fuel fires, and transfer fire to the roof of the home.
- Doors and windows should be closed and A/C left on.
