MARTIN COUNTY – It only takes a minute to change a life. Martin County Emergency Management wants to help residents and businesses to stay informed during an emergency. AlertMartin is a free service provided by Martin County that allows Emergency Management, Fire Rescue, Utilities, Martin County Sheriff's Office and municipal partners to send important public safety messages, evacuation notices and other timely warnings to help residents and business owners prepare and make critical life decisions.

AlertMartin allows notifications as broad as all-county, and as narrow as targeted evacuation zones, or small neighborhoods threatened by wildfire, flooding and other public safety emergencies. Residents and businesses are encouraged to sign up where they are able to associate landline phones, cell phones and email addresses with a Martin County street address.

Registering for AlertMartin is quick and easy. To learn more and sign up, text ALERTMARTIN to 888777 or visit www.martin.fl.us/AlertMartin. Messages will be sent on the preferred method of communication-cell phone, text, home phone, email and more-to ensure real-time access to potentially lifesaving information. 

Residents are encouraged to visit www.martin.fl.us, Martin County's online resource for services, information and news, and follow us on social media to stay current on happenings. Follow us on Twitter @MartinCountygov, Facebook at www.facebook.com/MartinCountyBoardofCountyCommissioner, Instagram @martincountyflorida and YouTube at MartinCountyFL.
