Good morning. As Surfside continues its post-recovery activities, I wanted to provide some resources and status updates to you. Additional information will be provided later today. Please use your common sense and it is strongly recommended that when in doubt, call ahead.
Town services are ramping up towards normal operations. Please note that due to extensive damage, all Parks & Recreation Facilities are currently closed. If you have any general questions, please call Town Hall at: 305 861-4863.
The Police Department is back to normal operations and officers are responding to calls for service as well as post-storm activities including traffic posts, a business district security detail, and one squad is conducting house to house welfare checks of residents. The Police Department continues to work cooperatively with Public Works with its cleanup efforts. Emergency management documentation, photographs, incident reports are being collected as required by the County and FEMA.
If you have an emergency, please call 911. If you have a non-emergency public safety matter, please call the Surfside Police Department at: 305 861-4862.
If you have County-related question, please call 311. Attached please find the most recent Incident Action Plan.
The County-issued curfew has been lifted.
Most, but not all streets in Surfside are cleared. Please use caution and if the traffic light is not operational, treat the intersection as a 4-way stop.
Due to continued rip current, please do not go into the ocean.
Water and Sewer Service
Surfside did not encounter and loss of service with its water and sewer systems. The water is safe to drink.
Storm Debris can be placed in the right-of way in from of your property, not on the pavement as that will impede ongoing restoration activities. Please keep the vegetative debris in a separate pile from all other wastes. Also, please keep the storm drains clear of storm debris.
Solid Waste/Recycling Collection
Regular solid waste and recycling collection services will commence as soon as the County facilities are operational.
Many properties are still without power. Please do not attempt to remove any debris that may be in contact with utility lines. Below is a link to the information portal maintained by FPL: https://www.fpl.com/government/statewide/miami-dade.html

Natural gas service is operational. If you turned off the service at the main, please do not turn it back on yourself. Only emergency or utility workers should turn the valve on/off. Please immediately call 877 832-6747 if you smell natural gas (rotten egg odor) or suspect a gas leak at any time.
