The City of Hollywood has launched a new emergency notification system called Alert Hollywood. Used by many government agencies throughout Florida, Alert Hollywood notifies residents through phone calls, e-mails and/or text messages to mobile phones of an emergency in the community such as a hurricane watch or warning, flash flood warning, tornado warning, serious police situations and other critical incidents.
Visit the City's website to access the Alert Hollywood registration page. On the registration page, click on the "Sign Up" link located just below the login fields. After you submit your information, you will receive Alert Hollywood notifications whenever an alert is issued. Alerts may be received by phone and/or email address. Severe weather alerts issued by the National Weather Service are automatically issued through the Alert Hollywood system if you elect to receive those notifications.
The Alert Hollywood service is free to the public. Text message fees by your wireless carrier may apply depending on your mobile phone plan.
ALREADY HAVE AN ALERT HOLLYWOOD ACCOUNT? If you already have created an Alert Hollywood account, simply type your username and password in the appropriate fields on the Alert Hollywood registration page and click on the "Sign In" button to log into your account.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR HOLLYWOOD CodeRED SUBSCRIBERS: The City of Hollywood no longer uses the CodeRED emergency alert system. If you would like to receive emergency notifications from the City of Hollywood, you must register for the Alert Hollywood service.
Alert Hollywood is powered by the Everbridge critical event management software platform.
