Stay Alert with Alert Marin

Wouldn't it be nice to hear about an impending emergency in your neighborhood, even if you're out of the area?

With Marin's newest emergency alert system, AlertMarin, users can opt to recieve texts, calls or emails to their cell phones, so even when you're out of town, you're in the know. Listed and unlisted landlines are automatically included in the system. 

Geographic areas include Belvedere, Corte Madera, Fairfax, Larkspur, Mill Valley, Novato, Ross, San Anselmo, San Rafael, Sausalito and Tiburon. Two cell phones can be registered for each area.

AlertMarin will inform you/provide updates on the whole gamut of emergencies—from natural disasters like flooding and wildfires (and subsequent evacuations, shelter and supply info) to public safety incidents that may effect your neighborhood.

Other safety resources in Marin include the Marin Emergency Radio Authority (MERA), and  neighborhood-based soical network Nextdoor (blog to come).

Register your cell phone and stay alert!
