Back to School

Best Wishes to Our Students

Goodbye, summer. Back to the books we go! Happy 1st day of school to all! There will be more cars and kids on our roadways. Please drive safely, and adhere to school zone speed limits.

Here are a few safety tips to share/teach your children:

  1. Ensure your child walks in a group and instill in them never to talk to strangers.
  2. When biking to school, ensure your child wears a helmet and follows the rules of the road.
  3. If your child rides the bus to school, ensure he/she stands away from the curb while waiting for the bus and always remain seated while the bus is in motion.
The City of Margate wishes you a successful school year ahead!

Renovation of Lift Station 21

The City of Margate began the renovations of Lift Station 21 which is located just east of SR 441 on the south side of Atlantic Boulevard this week. This renovation will consist of removing and replacing the existing wet well; replacement of lift station pumps, electrical service and controls; above ground piping; and installation of a new retaining wall surrounding the station. The estimated completion date of this project is no later than December 4, 2018. Please note that there will be periodic lane closures during this time while construction is underway.

CERT Class Begins Sept 8th

Be a CERT Volunteer

During natural disasters and other catastrophic events, we know that our local emergency personnel may not be able to respond to every call for assistance for hours and sometimes even days. Each year, the Margate-Coconut Creek Fire Rescue Department offers its Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training for residents and business owners who are interested in helping the community in the time of need.

The five-week training class, which begins on Saturday, September 8th, is free and open to the public. Classes will take place every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Coral Springs Regional Institute of Public Safety, located at 4180 N.W. 120th Avenue, in Coral Springs.

CERT training (hands-on and classroom) is designed to provide volunteers with the basic skills they need to assist others during a disaster. In addition, certified CERT members are encouraged to assist the Fire Department by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects. Topics include: Disaster Preparedness, Search and Rescue, Fire Safety, Disaster Medical Operations (including triage, hygiene, and basic first aid), Disaster Psychology, Damage Assessment, and Anti-Terrorism.

To register, please call (954) 971-7010 or go to margatecert.us.
