Sign-Up for Emergency Notification Service

How would you find out that the water in your neighborhood had been contaminated and for the next two days you needed to boil water before using?

How would you find out if a child was missing in your neighborhood, when the initial minutes are critical for the public to be on the lookout for car fitting a specific description?

Until now, you’d have to hope you had a radio or television on and tuned to a local station or that at least your neighbors they will call when they found out.

Now, though, there is CodeRed, a high-speed telephone emergency notification service capable of sending out pre-recorded emergency message to 1,000 phones a minute.

Initiated by the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, residents will soon be notified of public safety issues by the CodeRed system. Other agencies, including the St. Augustine Police Department and St. Augustine Fire Department are participants in the system and will be able to take full advantage of its features.

CodeRed is a geographical based notification system so that the appropriate city or county department can choose a specific area to be notified in the event of an emergency. those events may include gas leaks, fires, dangerous water conditions, water safety alerts, missing children, evacuation notice and routes, neighborhood Crime Watch support, sexual predator alert, and utility outages just to name a few of the examples for its use.

This innovative system is only as good as the telephone database which supports it therefore it is important that individuals and businesses make sure their phone numbers are in the system’s database. The vast majority of residents are automatically registered, but others should make a point of taking the time to register. They include all businesses and individuals who have an unlisted phone number, changed their phone number within the past year, changed their address within the past year, and anyone who uses their cellular phone as their primary home phone.

To register by phone, call the Sheriff’s Office at 904.810.6690 Monday through Friday between 8:00am and 5:00pm To register online, go to the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office web site at www.sjso.org and follow the link to the “CodeRed Residential and Business Data Collection.” 

The personal information received will not be distributed to anyone and will only be used for the purpose of this new and innovative way to communicate with the public on emergency and issues of vital importance.
