Brevard County Emergency Management Stay Informed

Step 4: Stay Informed

Information is critical before, during and after a disaster or emergency. There are several tools available in Brevard County to stay informed during an emergency situation or disaster. However, no one system is 100-percent fail safe and able to deliver notices to the entire population at the same time. Therefore, depending on the speed, location and severity of the emergency, one or more tools may be used to warn the public. While Brevard County Emergency Management provides the means for notification, it is the responsibility of the public to become familiar with the tools available and use the ones that will be best for them to receive emergency information. 

PLEASE NOTE: Each communication tool listed below is for information purposes only and should not be substituted for official notification via a NOAA Weather Radio. A NOAA Weather Radio remains the most effective way to receive timely and official emergency weather notifications.

Emergency Management Website

During a disaster, the Brevard County Emergency Management website will display all of the latest information.

Community Information Hotline

Before, during and after an emergency, residents may dial 2-1-1 to reach the Community Information Hotline.  The hotline is a partnership of Brevard County Emergency Management and 2-1-1 Brevard, a nonprofit 24-hour helpline. Specialists have the most up-to-date information on topics such as sandbags, evacuation routes and shelters, as well as how to get help after a storm. During Hurricane Matthew in 2016, 2-1-1 staff and volunteers answered almost 4,500 calls.

AlertBrevard Mass Notification System

Residents of Brevard County can be notified about emergencies in their area through an automated call notification system. AlertBrevard is a primary tool used by Emergency Management to send important information to the public. However, call notifications go only to landline telephones unless other numbers are added to our database. If you rely on a cellular phone as your main telephone number, you are strongly encouraged to register your number here.

AlertBrevard is used by Brevard County Emergency Management, Utilities, and Fire Rescue to notify businesses and residents for public safety purposes such as hazardous materials incidents, wildfires threatening homes, boil water notices, and other emergency situations. The calls will provide specific instructions for people to follow in order to keep themselves and others safe.

The new and enhanced version of the Emergency Notification System also provides the opportunity to receive this information via email or text message. It also offers the option of a variety of weather notifications.
