SUBSCRIBE TO RECEIVE EMERGENCY NOTIFICATIONS
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Palm Bay)—With the first tropical storm of the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season just off of Florida’s East Coast, residents are reminded and encouraged to subscribe to receive official emergency notifications from the city directly to their phone via voice message, text message or email. The notifications are specific to Palm Bay residents and are sent through the Code Red Emergency Communications Network. Messages such as evacuations notices, storm warnings, fires, floods, police emergencies, or other public safety related matters will be sent from the city through the web-based network directly to subscribers. Residents can also opt to receive general notifications pertaining to their specific address such as boil water notices, holiday solid waste management schedules, road closures or any other general notification sent from the city to its residents. “It really is the best way to get the official source of information that pertains to our community,” said Lisa Morrell, director of the city’s Communications and Information Technology department. “It’s free to subscribe and the beauty of the system is the subscriber can choose how they want the messages delivered.”
