Hurricane season is from June 1 through Nov. 30.
Austin County offers residents a free notification system for emergency alerts. During an incident, communication with the community becomes especially critical. Emergency communications may include alerts and warnings, directives about evacuations, curfews, self-protective actions, available assistance and other matters that impact response and recovery.
To be notified by your local emergency response team in the event of an emergency situation or a critical community alert, please take a moment to fill in your contact information by tapping on the "Regroup" symbol located on the Austin County web page, www.AustinCounty.com or contact the Austin County Emergency Management Office for assistance.
If you are aware of friends or family that are not taking advantage of this free service, please encourage them to visit the REGROUP alert system.
