Emergency Messaging

CodeRED and AlertPBC are systems that give city officials the ability to deliver pre-recorded emergency telephone notification/information messages to targeted areas or the entire city. These systems are geographically based notifications, which means street addresses are needed to select which phone numbers will receive emergency notification calls in any given situation.

Examples of times when the system could be utilized: drinking water contamination, utility outage, evacuation notice and route, missing person, fires or floods, bomb threat, hostage situation, chemical spill or gas leak and other emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification is essential for life safety.

Even if you think you are registered

No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is included. Businesses should register, as well as individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, have changed their phone number or address within the last year and use a cellular phone as their primary home phone.

The Citizen's Information Center (CIC)

In the event of a hurricane, residents are encouraged to stay tuned to the local media for information regarding evacuations, shelters, and storm information. During an emergency, residents can obtain further information by listening to the City of Boca Raton's radio station, AM 1650, or by watching the City's TV Channel, Ch. 20. The City's Citizen Information Center (CIC) is activated during storm events and can be contacted at 561-982-4900 for storm related information.
