Sign up for Alert St. Johns emergency notification system to receive updates during hurricane season
With June marking the beginning of the 2020 hurricane season, St. Johns County is encouraging all residents to sign up for Alert St. Johns, a new emergency notification system that provides critical information during emergency situations.
The Alert St. Johns system enables St. Johns County, the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, the city of St. Augustine and the city of St. Augustine Beach to quickly inform residents regarding a variety of situations, including severe weather, unexpected road closures, water advisories, missing persons, evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods, and incidents that may threaten public safety. Residents can sign up at www.sjcemergencymanagement.com.
Those who sign up can choose to receive notifications via a phone call to their home, business or mobile phone; by email; or text message. The Alert St. Johns system has replaced the Code Red notification system, so it is imperative that residents sign up for these critical notifications.
