Palm Beach County has established a Special Needs Program to provide for citizens with certain medical problems during a major emergency. The Special Needs Shelter is a facility with physicians and nurses on staff. It has auxiliary electrical power, is wind resistant, and not flood-prone. The shelter is not a medical facility and provides limited services. The shelter does not provide medication, dialysis, oxygen or oxygen concentrators. Space at these shelters is limited. Prioritization is based on need
The Palm Beach County Disaster Awareness and Recovery Tool (PBC DART) provides residents with information and tools used to prepare for a disaster and with the ability to report damage to their home or business in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. Damage reports help disaster managers get an immediate Countywide "picture" within hours of a disaster event to help prioritize response efforts.
Palm Beach County Library Systems offers Overdue Fine Forgiveness during the Month of June
On May 7, The Palm Beach County Commission authorized the Library System to run an Overdue Fine Forgiveness program that will take place in June, 2019. During the month of June, cardholders may request forgiveness for any overdue fines on their account. Requests will be accepted in person, by phone, and online at www.pbclibrary.org.
Cardholders can also return lost items for fine forgiveness and even request a free replacement card if needed. No refunds will be issued for fines already paid.
“This is only the second overdue fine forgiveness program in our history,” said Library Director Doug Crane. “With our anniversary celebration, we believe this is an appropriate opportunity to give back to the residents of Palm Beach County who have supported County library service for the past five decades.”
Fees exempt from the program: • Damaged or lost material fees
• Collection agency fees
• Bad check fees
• Inter Library Loan fees
