St. Lucie County’s Public Safety Urges Residents to Register for Emergency Notifications
St. Lucie County’s Public Safety Department is asking residents to sign up for emergency notifications through its new “reverse 9-1-1” system – Alert St. Lucie.
St. Lucie County, along with local law enforcement agencies and the St. Lucie County Fire District, are utilizing the Everbridge system to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire county. The system allows users to create accounts and customize what type of messages they want to receive and at what times the messages will arrive.
Alert St. Lucie is replacing the old CodeRED system. If residents and businesses have already signed up with CodeRED, your phone numbers will transfer to the new system. However, now is a good time to make sure your contact information is update to date.
Residents and businesses can update their contact information at www.stlucieco.gov/Alert.
Member of the county’s Public Safety staff will at the St. Lucie County Fair, running Feb. 24 – March 5, to assist residents will registering with Alert St. Lucie. Staff is scheduled to be there Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 9 p.m. and Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. inside the Business and Community Display Building (Building C).
Public Safety officials ask that everyone register their mobile phones as well as their "land line" and VOIP (voice over internet) phones to receive Alert St. Lucie messages.
St. Lucie County Public Safety Director Ron Parrish explains that these systems are only as good as the database supporting them.
"If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called," said Parrish. "Alert St. Lucie allows geographically-based delivery, which means street addresses are required to ensure emergency notification calls are received by the proper individuals in a given situation. The system works for cell phones too, but we need to have an associated street address to provide relevant messages.”
The data collected will only be used for emergency notification purposes such as wildfires, hurricanes, extreme weather and major road closures.
Alert St. Lucie is being powered by Everbridge, which is the same system used by the State of Florida’s Division of Emergency Management.
