Emergency Management Offers Public Safety Alert Service
St. Johns County Emergency Management Offers Public Safety Alert Service
St. Johns County Emergency Management (SJCEM) is using Nixle Alerts to provide another way for the public to stay updated with relevant information from the St. Johns County Emergency Operations Center. Any individual can text StJohnsEOC to 888777 to opt-in to receive notifications through SMS text messages. Nixle does not charge for this service, but carrier message and data rates may apply.
SJCEM will use this service to alert residents of public safety advisories, natural and human-caused disasters, and other significant events that may impact the community.
“As we move into the peak of hurricane season, we want to ensure we can reach as many residents as possible with pertinent public safety information,” St. Johns County Emergency Management Deputy Director Kelly Wilson said. “Signing up for this service is an excellent way for the public to receive that information.”
