AlertMartin is a free service provided by Martin County that allows Emergency Management, Fire Rescue, Utilities, Martin County Sheriff's Office and municipal partners to send important public safety messages and other timely warnings by phone, text or email.

Emergency notifications will be issued when there are imminent threats to life, health and safety for residents and visitors of Martin County. This can include, but is not limited to, severe weather events, evacuation orders, flooding, boil water notices, gas leaks and more.
