St. Johns County is launching a new emergency notification system to provide residents with critical information during emergency situations. Beginning February 1, the new Alert St. Johns system will enable St. Johns County, the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, the City of St. Augustine, and the City of St. Augustine Beach to quickly provide residents with critical information in 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.
To receive these time-sensitive alerts, residents can sign up at https://www.sjso.org/community-resources/AlertStJohns/
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 will replace the Code Red notification system, so it is imperative that residents sign up for these critical notifications.
