At Southeast Georgia Health System, the health and safety of our patients,
team members and community is our top priority. At this time, the only
thing certain about Hurricane Irma is that it exists and we are prepared
for it. If we fall within the path of Irma, it will be a few days from
now. The best of weather forecasters, from the National Hurricane Center,
cannot make a reliable forecast about this particular storm at this point.
There will be major changes to the forecasted track over the next couple
of days, so it is important not to overreact to any single forecast.
As of now, we are at our lowest level of emergency preparedness. This means
we are monitoring and assessing this potential storm in collaboration
with the county emergency management agencies. There are no changes to
the Health System’s normal operations and we will continue to provide
outstanding care to the communities we serve.
The Health System reminds community residents that the hospitals are NOT
shelter locations. Individuals seeking shelter are directed to refer to
their county emergency management agency shelter locations.
