Martin County Emergency Management would like to help residents be prepared, no matter the threat. Our community has already witnessed the devastating impacts that both health and natural disasters can cause.
Now is the time for our residents to plan and prepare for a disaster, and we’ve created a guide to help you. Being prepared can reduce fear and increase resiliency from the impacts of disasters.
Knowing what to do during an emergency and planning how you and your family will prepare, react and respond will help keep you safe.
Assemble essential items to help your family in the event of an emergency. Include a face covering and hand sanitizer.
Determine where you would go if asked to evacuate – travel tens of miles, not hundreds of miles. Identify your family communication plan.
You can also register to receive emergency notifications by phone, text, and/or email. To sign up, text ALERTMARTIN to 888777 or visit martin.fl.us/alertmartin.
Build a culture of preparedness to make Martin County a more resilient community. There are many ways to get involved so you can make a positive difference – volunteer, donate food or supplies or make a financial contribution.
