2022 Hurricane Preparedness Campaign Press Event
This morning, May 4th, at 11:00 A.M., Galveston County Judge Mark Henry, Mayor Carl Joiner, City Council, City Staff, and Lee Vela, with Clear Channel Outdoor, met at Kemah City Hall in a collaborative effort to kickstart the Hurricane Awareness and Preparedness campaign. The Galveston County Office of Emergency Management in partnership with Clear Channel Outdoor launched its countdown to the 2022 Hurricane Season via digital billboards. These public service announcements are part of Galveston County’s annual preparedness campaign urging residents to get ready for the upcoming hurricane season which starts on June 1st. A total of eight digital billboards throughout Galveston County will display the actual countdown to the start of hurricane season. Clear Channel Outdoor is providing the billboards at no charge to the county. Preliminary predictions are calling for an above average 2022 hurricane season. Planning can help you protect yourself, your family, and your property before disaster strikes. Get hurricane preparedness tips and sign up for emergency alerts for Galveston County at www.gcoem.org.
