Community Notification System
Atlantic County Office of Emergency Preparedness has contracted the services of a Community Notification System that may be used to notify all residents of Atlantic County in the event of an emergency. We have also contracted with Verizon to obtain the 9-1-1 Database. This database contains every direct dial landline telephone number in Atlantic County. The Verizon 9-1-1 Database at this time does not capture Cellular phones, or some Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) phone numbers. This registration process will allow you to register your cellular, and/or VOIP phone numbers with your address. Additionally, individuals who maintain property in the county but live in other areas should consider registering as well. This will ensure that you are on the list to receive notifications from our Community Notification System.
**New Feature - As part of the registration process you can sign up for National Weather Service Alerts directly as text to your cell phone. Keep informed as to what is going on in our area even when you are away from television and radio. Click on the registration link below to sign up.
