Atlantic County Emergency Alert System

The Atlantic County, Office of Emergency Preparedness has developed an Alert System to keep our residents and visitors informed of emergent information regarding weather events, large scale emergencies, homeland security information and special emergency preparedness information. This system was developed to keep you, the members of our community, better informed and prepared should an emergency or disaster occur.

The Alert System Message Symbols will be posted throughout Atlantic County Government's web site. The Symbols will only appear when an active alert is posted. Please check back frequently as alerts change as new information is developed. Bookmark our home page to quickly find any alerts that are currently posted.
