Emergency Evacuation Support

Bus driving in rainSpace Coast Area Transit oversees the emergency support function, transportation, for Brevard County Emergency Management. In order to provide the highest quality emergency service possible, residents with special needs MUST pre-register with the Emergency Management Office at 321-637-6670; or by using the Everbridge Online Application or by contacting the applicants home health care agency, hospice agency, medical supply company, or other caregiver, who can assist with completing the application. Once registered, annual updates are required to keep information up-to-date.

Emergency Responder

Space Coast Area Transit coordinates with other emergency support functions such as public works, law enforcement, the Red Cross, School Board, and Health Department, providing support such as transportation for crews and supplies like tarps, food and emergency equipment. When required, Space Coast Area Transit also functions as an emergency responder.

After the Emergency

After the “all clear” is given by the Emergency Operations Center, Space Coast Area Transit returns special needs citizens to their homes. An immediate effort to restore public transportation services begins. An inventory of facilities, equipment and employees is taken to determine the initial capacity of service to be implemented. Each route is driven to monitor the status of debris, traffic light outages and other restrictions. The number one priority is providing paratransit services to dialysis centers and other life sustaining transportation needs, followed by resuming bus and contracted services to insure mobility is restored to all Brevard County residents.
