Emergency Notifications - AlertFlagler
Flagler County uses a variety of systems to ensure efficient delivery of important emergency information with residents, visitors, and businesses.
ALERTFlagler is a no-cost countywide service that allows subscribers to sign up for a variety of emergency notifications based on their enrolled addresses. This allows subscribers to customize notifications and their delivery method from a variety of choices including phone calls, email, SMS/text message, or through a downloadable app.
The Emergency Alert System (EAS) is a national public warning system that requires broadcasters, cable television systems, and satellite radio/TV service providers to deliver emergency information from County, State, and Federal authorities. These alerts typically come across the radio or TV, preceded by a tone and may be audible and/or displayed on the screen. There is no cost to receive these alerts, and devices must be turned on to receive the alerts.
NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards is a nationwide network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather information directly from an area’s National Weather Service office. In addition to the weather information, this system broadcasts Emergency Alert System messages. In order to receive the weather information and EASs from this network a NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards receiver is required. These receivers are readily available at a variety of retailers. Many receivers have a feature that allows the radio to be turned on 24/7, but only have the audio play out loud when it receives specific messages for the area.
This feature is known as Specific Area Messaging Encoding (SAME). The SAME code for Flagler County is 012035; and the frequencies to be used in the receiver for Flagler County are 162.400 MHz or 162.425 MHz. For assistance programming a receiver, please contact Flagler County Emergency Management at 386-313-4200.
Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) are emergency messages sent by the County, State, or Federal governments through WEA enabled mobile phones (check with individual mobile carriers). There are three types of WEA: Presidential Alerts, Extreme/Severe Alerts, and Amber Alerts. This service is based on current mobile device location at the time the alert is issued. There is no cost to receive these alerts, and no need to register. It is extremely important that you DO NOT DISABLE THE RECEIPT OF THE EXTREME/SEVERE ALERTS, as this is the type of alert used to disseminate Tornado Warnings and Protective Action messages, such as whether to evacuate or shelter in place during a weather event.
