The City of Daytona Beach Shores is proud to announce its new emergency alert system, ShoresAlert, to help keep residents and business owners informed throughout emergency situations. ShoresAlert enables the City to provide residents and Daytona Beach Shores businesses with important community information put out by the City to share, such as severe weather, unexpected road closures, missing persons, evacuations, and boil water notices.
According to a release, registration on the new system, which is free to use, is open to Daytona Beach Shores residents and businesspeople. Users can specify how they want to receive the messages – calls to home, mobile or business phones, emails, or text messages. The system allows users to set a "do-not-disturb" time when they register if they don’t want to be disturbed during certain hours. Participants can change subscription preferences at any time, and all information provided by users will be kept strictly confidential in compliance with Florida Law.
Powered by Everbridge, ShoresAlert is part of the Alert Florida System, and some other local cities, including Volusia County itself, use similar systems to alert their residents and businesses. The ShoresAlert signup and management webpages are featured on the city website, www.CityofDBS.org, and accessed through the City of Daytona Beach Shores mobile app – available in the Google Play and Apple App stores.
Residents who need assistance registering for ShoresAlert may contact Daytona Beach Shores Community Information Manager Cindi Lane at 386-281-3002.
