Seconds count in an emergency

The Miami Gardens Police Department has recently implemented an emergency notification system. The City is now using the CodeRED Emergency Notification System, which is an ultra high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications and distribution of information considered to be important to our residents.

This system allows us to telephone all or targeted areas of the City for informational purposes or in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action, such as an evacuation, contaminated water, hazardous chemical spill, a missing child, etc. This system is capable of dialing the entire City within minutes, delivering a prerecorded message describing the situations to a live person or an answering machine in the affected area. This information could include instructions requiring immediate action on the part of the recipient.

A calling database was established by extracting information from the City’s computerized files and other public record sources. It is certain that not all phone numbers of residents and business/residential property owners within our incorporated limits were captured.

If you reside in the City, operate a business, or own property within the incorporated limits of the City of Miami Gardens and would like to receive CodeRED emergency messages you may sign up by visiting the Department’s web site, or by clicking the CodeRED icon below. IMPORTANT: USE YOUR PHYSICAL MIAMI GARDENS ADDRESS. DO NOT USE POST OFFICE OR OUT OF TOWN ADDRESSES. Should you at anytime desire to be removed from the calling list you may do so by calling the Miami Gardens Police Department at (305)474-1469.
