The City of Margate Fire Rescue has instituted the Code RED Emergency Notification System. The ultra-high speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications allows us to telephone all or targeted areas of the City in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action. The system is capable of dialing 60,000 phone numbers per hour. It then delivers our recorded message to a person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number.
The Code RED system will be utilized to notify citizens of situations such as but not limited to: drinking water contamination, evacuation notices & routes, missing persons, fires or floods, bomb threats, hostage situations, chemical spills or gas leaks, and other emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification is essential for life safety. Your information will remain completely private and will only be made available to notify you of critical situations.
We urge you to visit the CodeRED web page and register your home phone, cellphone, and email address. Residents may also visit City Hall at 5790 Margate Blvd. and register with the receptionist. If you have any questions, please call (954) 971-7010 for further information.
