Public Safety. A reminder for City of Lake Worth residents. What to do if you see smoke.

If you see suspicious or unusual smoke, even without presence of flames, call 911 immediately.

However, if you see any smoke at all coming from a crematorium call 561-840-4500 or contact the Palm Beach County, Florida, Dept. of Health. If you wish to schedule an appointment to discuss this matter, call 1-855-438-2778, or use this link. Another option is to write a letter to:
Palm Beach County Dept. of Health, 800 Clematis St., West Palm Beach, Florida, 33401.
If you’re interested in learning more about this issue, e.g., a recent event and about what occurred in 2015 according to a creative reporter at the Post, use this link:

“The thick black smoke was hard to miss. It curled into the sky, swallowing the tops of palm trees and tumbling down like a shroud over the downtown streets . . .”
