Safety is Key at RiverBend Motorcoach Resort
At RiverBend, we want each of our owners, renters and their guests to be prepared in the event of an emergency. Whether you are dealing with a health scare or our area is under a severe weather advisory, each of the documents below will help you know what to do should a disaster strike. You can also find copies of these and several pamphlets published by the State of Florida and Hendry County in our Welcome Center.
In the event of an emergency, the most important thing is to remain calm. Here are a few key things to note:
In a Medical or fire Emergency
- Call 911 first!
- Give your location as follows:
- Hendry County
- RiverBend Motorcoach Resort
- Lot Number
- Street Address
- Then contact the Welcome Center or Security Guard to alert them of approaching emergency vehicles. If you are calling before 7:00 am or after Welcome Center hours, contact Linda or Lee.
- If possible, send a neighbor or friend to the gate to escort responders to your lot.
In a Weather Emergency
Please note: RiverBend does NOT have an approved safe shelter. We have several areas that can provide relief during a tornado including the showers and restrooms of the River Clubhouse or Pool Clubhouse. The designated safe shelter during a hurricane is LaBelle Middle School or you can choose to evacuate the area by driving in the opposite direction of the hurricane’s path. Always stay away from glass windows and doors and monitor local radio and TV stations when possible. FEMA has an app available for you to download to your phone for current updates. The Hendry County Emergency Operations Center will provide additional guidance during the event of a hurricane.
These may include brush fires, toxic spills, acts of terrorism, etc. Stay in the resort until notified otherwise by RiverBend staff or the Emergency Response Team.
