Our Alert Nassau Citizen Alerts system is part of the Alert Florida Statewide Notification System, a mass notification tool that lets public safety officials rapidly warn the population about imminent or sudden hazards via phone, text message, email, social media, and mobile apps.

Residents, business owners, and visitors who want to receive these local alerts must “Opt-In” via the secure Alert Nassau Citizen Alerts website and provide their personal contact and location information. Choose a username and password you will remember – you will need them to log back into Citizen Alerts to make changes.

    • Provide a local physical 9-1-1 street address – DO NOT use out-of-town or P.O. Box addresses. You will receive alerts pertaining to that location even if you aren’t there – if you move or travel, you have to log in and edit your account or the alerts will continue.
    • Provide the ways you want to be alerted – cell phone number, email address, etc. – in the order you want them to be used. The system will go down the list to try to reach you until you confirm receipt of the message. If you don’t want phone calls, specify “text”.
    •  Expand the Weather Alerts option and use the check-boxes to choose the conditions for which you want to be notified by the National Weather Service. All weather alerts are sent directly by the National Weather Service (NWS) – more than 100 separate weather alerts are available – uncheck the boxes you don’t want!
