Atlantic County is able to send registered participants emergency alerts via text message, email, pager, or voice mail (in extreme cases), based on your preferences. It is important that we collect this contact information because many households no longer utilize traditional land-based telephone lines.
The system is intended to be used for emergency alerts, as well as non-emergency incidents that may have significant impacts. to residents. Emergency Alerts may be related to specific hazards that require some kind of action be taken such as evacuation, shelter-in-place, boil water orders, etc. Non-emergency alerts may include significant transportation problems with prolonged impacts or significant ongoing police or fire activity. This is not an all inclusive list, but is meant to demonstrate that the system will not be used for routine information. In addition to receiving information on a wireless device, registrants may also receive notification on their land telephone line, as available, depending on the type of incident or event.
Please provide your property address and preferred method(s) of contact. Adding your address will allow the system to target messaging by location so you do not receive alerts that don’t pertain to your geographical area.
If you had previously registered as part of the Atlantic County Emergency Notification System, you do not need to re-register. If necessary, you may modify your contact information or choose to unsubscribe be selecting the appropriate link below.
