NEW FLOOD VIDEO: Do you know the difference between minor, moderate, and major tidal flooding? The terminology can be confusing. Avalon’s volunteer Floodplain Management Committee came up with the idea to create a video to explain the differences, and to discuss the impact in Avalon. Press of Atlantic City Meteorologist Joe Martucci was excited by the project and volunteered to be a part of it.

GOLF CART SAFETY: This is a great educational video that is a MUST WATCH for all owners of golf carts. At the Avalon Volunteer Fire Department's weekly drill night, the members learned and discussed responding to utility emergencies. Lt. Lisa Sasdelli found a video which covers the issues related to electric golf carts, especially when charged in the garage. This is a semi-frequent occurrence in Avalon.
