Emergency Notification System

Sign up to receive emergency alerts and severe weather warnings that could directly impact residents, businesses and second homeowners in Atlantic County.

Atlantic County is able to send registered participants emergency alerts via phone, text message (SMS), email, mobile application, and TTY phone, 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, missing persons 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.
