Broward County Government is well aware that this is the “Information Age,” and we have several services available to keep you informed and connected. There are a variety of ways to find out about the many services that are available in Broward County and how to access the services that you are interested in. One way is the Broward County Call Center which you can easily contact by simply dialing 3-1-1.
The Call Center at 3-1-1 provides a single point of contact for the services and programs offered by the more than 50 agencies comprising Broward County government. They can answer just about any question you have, such as how to pay your property taxes online, how to locate a county document or record, where to get your dog or cat neutered or spayed. Callers are provided a fast, simple and convenient way to reach trained, professional information specialists. You’ll reach our knowledgeable staff and we promise no voicemail, just the personal touch. The Call Center can handle calls in any language as well as having English, Spanish and Creole speaking specialists on staff. The Call Center is open Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-5:00 pm.
When an emergency strikes, such as a hurricane, the Call Center is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is an important resource as hurricane season is June 1 through November 30, with September being the peak time for activity in the Atlantic Basin. To stay informed, residents are encouraged to subscribe now to the Broward County Hurricane e-mail update system. You can also receive the latest updates by following us on Twitter, or liking us on Facebook.

Broward County's rainy season is here and each day the humidity increases- making a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. The best protection from mosquito-transmitted diseases is avoiding exposure to mosquito bites. Experts suggest residents keep doors and windows closed and apply insect repellent containing DEET sparingly to clothing and skin.
Hope you are having an enjoyable summer.
