NEW: CodeRed Emergency Notification System, severe weather warnings now available for Martin

 Martin County Fire Rescue has announced a new public Emergency Notification System called CodeRed. This allows Emergency Management personnel to send Public Safety messages, evacuation notices, and other timely warnings, by phone, text, and/or email. Citizens and businesses are encouraged to use a new Community Signup feature where they are able to associate landline phones, cellular phones, and email addresses with a Martin County street address. Code Red allows notifications as broad as all-county, and as narrow as targeted evacuation zones, or small neighborhoods threatened by wildfire, flooding and other public safety emergencies.

Another feature of the CodeRed system is localized weather warnings.  Citizens and businesses opting into the system can receive severe weather and tornado warnings when issued by the National Weather Service affecting portions of Martin County.  With Weather Warnings, the public can receive timely information regarding these threats and react with protective actions, such as going indoors, sheltering, etc.  Signing up for the warnings is as easy as a few mouse clicks and the warnings are automatically generated.

To sign up for CodeRed notifications and allow phone, text, or email information for delivery of important Public Safety messages and/or severe weather warnings, click here to see terms and conditions, and to complete your signup.
