A message from the 76th Precinct

A message from the 76th precinct: There have been numerous calls to the precinct inquiring as to whether or not they need to evacuate their homes. As the mayor has stated repeatedly if you live in "Zone A" you are in a mandatory evacuation zone. Much of the RedHook area is in "Zone A". If there are any questions as to what zone you reside in go to and click on hurricaine info.

Inquiries can be made to the 76 Precinct at (718) 834-3211, if that number is busy try (718) 834-3231. The mayor has requested that evacuees ride out the storm with friends or family. For those requiring shelter, the nearest evacuation centers are NYC Technical College located at 300 Jay Street, John Jay HS located at 237 4th Avenue , Brooklyn Tecnical HS located at 29 Fort Greene Place and Cobble Hill High School at 347 Baltic Street.

There will be increased patrols by the 76, to deter crime and aid those in need thoughout the duration of the storm.

Those requiring routine Police assistance are asked to call the numbers above, as well as utilizing the 311 system. As always, emergency situations should be called into 911. Be safe.
