Watkins Elementary School in West Park has been designated as a storm shelter for emergency situations. However, it is important to keep in mind not all shelters are opened immediately. Each emergency event dictates which shelters are opened and when. It is important to stay advised of the situation as it unfolds. You will be able to find shelter openings here on this website during emergencies in addition to the City of Hallandale Beach Radio 1620AM, Comcast Cable Government Access Channel, and your local news stations.

The Code RED emergency notification system is a communication service available for emergency and non-emergency notifications. Code RED employs intranet mapping capable of geographic targeting of calls, coupled with a telephone calling system capable of delivering a prerecorded message directly to homes and businesses at the rate of up to 60,000 calls per hour.
Many residents that were disabled, frail, or had health issues did not evacuate to a shelter and did not have family or friends to assist them during the prolonged power outages in the aftermath of Wilma. Some of these residents experienced serious difficulties. Due to the power and telephone outages some residents were not able to leave their apartments to get assistance or let anyone know that they were in need.
The Vulnerable Population Registration was designed as a joint partnership between all municipalities and Broward County to assist emergency responders to better plan for future recoveries from hurricanes and other disasters. Registering into the database should not be considered as a guarantee that you will be provided services or be placed on a priority list for emergency responders; however, it will help us to be better prepared to respond after a disaster.
All the information provided will be held in the strictest confidence as required by State law. Thank you for taking the time to help us serve you better.
Register with Broward County's Vulnerable Population Registry here or call our main office at (954)457-1470 for assistance.
