2018 Hurricane Season begins June 1, 2018, and City officials are already urging residents to start preparing. The first task on every preparedness checklist should be to register for AlertDFB, the new and official emergency alert system for Deerfield Beach.
As of June 1, the City will no longer be working with Code Red. Deerfield Beach has opted to transition to a system that is linked to the County and the State emergency alert system. This process will make communication much more seamless, which is critical in times of crisis.
Residents can choose to receive emergency communication by a phone call to a landline or mobile device, email alerts, or text messages. There is also an option to download the app to a mobile device.
To register, go to www.dfb.city/AlertDFB and click the sign-up button in the middle of the page. Don’t wait, be prepared and sign up today. Make sure the City has a way of communicating with you in the event of an emergency, like a hurricane.
For more information, please contact the Public Affairs and Marketing Office at the City of Deerfield Beach at 954.480.4430 or 954.480.4232.
