Town of Melbourne Village (321) 723-8300
Simply put – we are a team of volunteers who will check on each and every resident before and after a major storm and ensure that help is provided.
Street Captains are a corps of volunteers created to improve the wellbeing and safety of residents during a designated hurricane (or other significant crisis). We try to reach every resident before and after a hurricane strikes. Almost half of Americans expect to rely on their neighbors after a disaster and this is especially true here when a hurricane or severe tropical storm hits our tight knit community.
Pre-storm, Street Captains will identify neighbors in their designated area who are leaving or staying, are dependent on electricity for health issues, or need help preparing their home. Post-storm, Street Captains will report blocked driveways or doors, home damage, flooding, and the need emergency power for health equipment, etc.
• Activated when a hurricane WATCH is initiated.
• Identified by GREEN Street Captain Buttons, but may reach out via text or phone.
• Street Captains report to Sue Ditty, who will organize and coordinate the appropriate response.
• Call 911 in an emergency, not your Street Captain.
