Emergency vehicles in Boca Raton won’t be deployed if wind speeds from Hurricane Matthew exceed 39 miles per hour, according to Mayor Susan Haynie.
In a Facebook Live update from city leaders at Boca’s Emergency Operations Center, Haynie said emergency calls will be queued and emergency vehicles on standby.
Winds in Boca Raton are predicted to exceed 39 mph between 9 p.m. Thursday and 1 a.m. Friday, according to the National Weather Service.
As soon as winds die down, first responders will be deployed.
Haynie also reminded the public not to call 911 for “non-emergencies.” The city’s Citizen Information Center is taking calls, at (561) 982-4900, with questions before, during and after the storm.
