County Expands Emergency Warning Capability

Alachua County Emergency Management has recently expanded its emergency warning capabilities with the addition of the Emergency Alert System (EAS). EAS will allow Alachua County officials to quickly deliver warnings via television and radio for rapidly developing, life threatening situations.

EAS is a national public warning system that requires broadcasters to offer a communications capability to the President during a national emergency. Additionally, EAS can be activated by local and state authorities to rapidly disseminate emergency information to the general public. The local EAS may be activated in response to emergency situations such as severe weather, floods, chemical spills, terrorism or any occurrence that poses a danger to life or property.

Emergency Management Director David Donnelly said, “Alachua County utilizes several tools to warn the public. No one mechanism can reach every person, every time. The acquisition of the EAS is a big piece of the puzzle.”

A list of notification systems used by Alachua County can be found at Emergency Management’s website under the ‘Be Informed’ section.

Citizens can sign up for weather warnings and other notifications by visiting the CodeRed website or by calling 352-264-6500, Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m.to 5:30 p.m.

Flu Vaccine Available at the Health Department

The Alachua County Health Department (ACHD) is offering influenza vaccine starting Friday September 21, 2012. “Receiving an influenza vaccine is a primary preventive measure against influenza infection.” stated Paul Myers, Administrator of the ACHD. “In addition to getting a flu shot, staying home when ill, practicing proper cough etiquette and washing your hands are effective personal means to protect yourself and the community from a variety of illnesses.”

Flu shots are being offered at the Health Department’s main Gainesville clinic located at 224 SE 24th Street, phone number 352-334-7950, and the City of Alachua satellite clinic located in the Hitchcock’s shopping plaza located at 15530 NW US Hwy 441, phone number 386-462-2542.

This year’s flu vaccine is effective against the major circulating strains of flu. The cost for the vaccine is $25.00. If citizens have Medicare part B, there is no charge as long as they bring their Medicare B card and any supplemental insurance cards with them. Citizens who normally receive their vaccines from providers other than the Health Department should contact them for vaccine availability. Those between the ages of 6 months and 18 years who are uninsured, have Medicaid or an insurance that does not cover the immunization may receive the vaccine at the Alachua County Health Department for free.

Parents of public and private school students are encouraged to review and complete FLUMIST consent forms provided by their child’s school. FLUMIST clinics will be held in the schools this fall and a completed consent form is required for participation. FLUMIST is effective, painless and free.

To protect yourself from mosquitoes, you should remember “Drain and Cover”:

DRAIN standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying

COVER skin with clothing or repellent

Tips on Repellent Use

The Florida Department of Health (DOH) continues to conduct statewide surveillance for mosquito borne illnesses, including West Nile virus infections, Eastern equine encephalitis, St. Louis encephalitis, malaria, and dengue. Residents of Florida are encouraged to report dead birds via the web site for Surveillance of Wild-bird Die-offs.
