Town of Sullivan's Island

 

Emergency Preparedness

Living on a coastal barrier Island, it is important all residents remain prepared for potential emergency situations that may require evacuation, including hurricanes (Season runs from June 1st - November 30th), earthquakes, tsunamis, floods (from other storm events) and fires.

There are many agency brochures and checklists at Town Hall to help you get prepared for a variety of emergency situations.  Town Hall -2050-B Middle Street; Phone (843) 883-3198. 
The Town hopes the following tools will help residents get started making their plans.

S.I.R.E.N.S.

The Town announces the Sullivan's Island Emergency Notice System (or S.I.R.E.N.S.):  a new outdoor voice and sire system.  SIRENS will test at 12Noon on the 1st Saturdy of each month (test only).  Thank you for your patience as the Town tests this new method to alert citizens and guests of future emergencies!
