SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla. – As many of you know, the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office Public Safety Communications Center provides dispatch services for ALL law and fire agencies in Sarasota County with the exception of the North Port Police Department.

Individual agencies decide when to pull first responders from the road during severe weather events.

Some agencies have already made this decision, and others will be doing so soon.

Collectively, most agencies make the decision once there are sustained winds of 45 MPH.

“Please bear with us and understand why some agencies may not be able to respond in the coming hours. In the event of a cardiac arrest, choking, childbirth, unconscious person, or severe hemorrhage, our center’s medical director will take over the call and provide as much guidance as possible. Please stay safe and look out for one another,” said Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office.
