Emergency Management

CodeRED Logo 2016
CodeRED is an emergency communication service available for mass notifications. The Community Notification Enrollment Page allows residents and businesses to provide their contact information in the event of an emergency. This enrollment page allows you to confidentially enter an unlisted number, cell phone number or any other secondary phone numbers. This will allow Oakland Park to reach more residents with essential emergency information. It is important to update/verify your contact information -- especially if you want to receive text and email alerts.

Home Damage Assessment Program

In the immediate aftermath of an emergency such as Hurricane Irma, residents can help first responders quickly identify areas of devastation, even before damage assessment teams are able to more effectively canvass the County, by participating in the Home Damage Assessment Program.

The website for the Home Damage Assessment Program features photos of four homes that have experienced varying levels of flooding and devastation. As soon as it is safe to go outside, compare the way your home looks to the four photos. Report to Broward County officials your address, and the number of the photo that mostly closely resembles the level of damage you have experienced.

To report, call the Broward County Emergency Hotline at 311 in Broward or 954-831-4000. If you have power and Internet service, you can visit this site to report. You can also report using your smart phone.

Emergency Management officials encourage residents to print off the four photos ahead of time, and store them with their hurricane kit for easy access after the storm, or bookmark the website link in their smart phone. Reporting through a smart phone automatically associates your location with the level of damage you are reporting. You will not be required to enter your address.
