"Hurricane preparedness is key to survival and orderly management under emergency conditions. Your advanced preparation can help you and your neighbors through a hurricane. Before any storm arrives, be sure to checkout Tybee's Emergency Management Information7, and keep contact information readily available for the CEMAHurricane Information Line, (912)201-4590. Note that the City's web-site is hosted elsewhere in the country so that, even if a potential disaster strikes here, the web will remain available for communications, and the web site will provide information updates whenever they become available.

Emergency and evacuation instructions will be given as needed here, on the toll-free number and on the local Comcast Cable access Channel 7. The City has voice warning sirens that announce emergencies when they arise. Therefore, there will be no confusion as to what a siren signal actually means. Instead of one centrally located siren, there are four announcement systems distributed on the Island. This system is tested near noon on the first Wednesday each month. The test will before gone if severe weather conditions occur at the time of the test.

If you are warned to seek shelter in an emergency, DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CURRENT SHELTER, such as your home or room - the safe site locations are Battery Brumby, the Tybee Gym, and the Ocean Plaza meeting rooms. These locations are safe sites intended for beach goers and visitors without any other place of refuge. In the event of an evacuation order, you would only then be expected to leave your home and depart the island.You are invited to register for the City’s Citizen Alert notifications. When you sign up, you will be notified of emergencies, as well as less urgent events if you so request. "
