Important Post-Irma Telephone Numbers You Need to Know

9/11/2017

Now that Irma has hit us and we're still dealing with wind and rain bands, be sure to have the following numbers handy for reporting issues:

  • 352-955-1818 for local public safety for non-emergencies
  • 352-334-2871 for power outages and downed power lines (do NOT check to see if they're live)
  • 352-334-2550 for natural gas emergencies
  • 311 for local rumor control
  • Report non-emergency local issues (i.e. street sign damage, downed trees, streetlight outage, drainage issues) online via 311GNV at http://tinyurl.com/311GNVIrma
  • 911 should only be used for emergencies

Please be sure to reserve 911 for emergencies. Operators are receiving many non-emergency calls right now, which slows down their call time for life-threatening situations.

Calls received are being prioritized, so please be patient.
