Emergency Contact Information, Tips For Snowstorm- from OEM Director Lt. James Bennett

January 2, 2014 By
1-2-14

In preparation for the storm and drop in temperatures, emergency hotlines and web services have been made available.

During the storm, the Brigantine Office of Emergency Management recommends checking on family members and friends, as well as the elderly, disabled or isolated. Also the NJOEM recommends keeping pets indoors and dressing in layers to avoid frostbite and hypothermia when going outdoors.

OEM director James Bennett  is recommending drivers check their vehicle’s cooling, charging and exhaust systems by a qualified technician and to have good wipers and windshield washer fluid on their vehicles. Throughout the storm, Lt. Bennett  is recommending drivers drive slowly, leave distance between other vehicles and carry an emergency winter kit with flashlights, warm clothes, gloves, non-perishable snacks, a blanket, a shovel, an abrasive like sand and a cell phone charger. Before starting a vehicle, Lt. Bennett  recommends drivers make sure their tailpipe is clean before starting their car and to remove all snow and ice from the vehicle.

OEM is prepared to activate an Emergency Operations Center during any major disaster to allow coordination of all support agencies to provide continuity of services to the public

Lieutenant Jim Bennett, Director 266-7600 extension 285

CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment Page

coderedRegister Now!

Atlantic County Office of Emergency Preparedness has contracted the services of a Emergency Notification System that may be used to notify all residents of Atlantic County in the event of an emergency. We have also contracted with Verizon to obtain the 9-1-1 Database. This database contains every direct dial landline telephone number in Atlantic County. The Verizon 9-1-1 Database at this time does not capture Cellular phones, or some Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) phone numbers. This registration process will allow you to register your cellular, and/or VOIP phone numbers with your address. Additionally, individuals who maintain property in the county but live in other areas should consider registering as well.  This will ensure that you are on the list to receive notifications from our Emergency Notification System.

The secure, customized Community Notification Enrollment (CNE) page allows residents and businesses to add or update their contact information to ensure they will be included when a message is sent – unlisted numbers, mobile numbers, TDD/TTY requirements can all be entered.

https://public.coderedweb.com/CNE/BF32B64EBE25

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1.  I received a CodeRED call, does that mean I am in the CodeRED database?

YES.  If you would like to submit additional information, such as cell phone number(s), text and email information, you should re-register. Duplicated numbers will be automatically removed from the system. If you are unsure if you are registered, it is better to re-register. This will ensure that your information is included in the database. All data is kept strictly confidential and will only be used for emergency purposes.

2.  Why did CodeRED call me several times?

If there is no answer and you do not have an answering device, the number will be attempted up to 3 times.

3. CodeRED called me, but no message played.

If you pick up the phone but do not speak, CodeRED will not know it has contacted a live person. The system will disconnect and retry at a later time.

4. Why did it leave only part of the message on my answering machine?

 CodeRED will leave a message on an answering device. There are many different brands and types of devices on which to leave messages. On occasion, it may be unable to determine if it has reached a live person or a machine, and therefore only a partial message may be delivered. The recipient can retrieve the message by calling 1-866-419-5000.

5.  Why does my phone ring once and hang up? I have received two calls but was unable to answer them.

If your answering device has a ring back tone which plays a song, the system will interpret this as an Operator Intercept and hang up. It will, however, retry the number.  There are two options to resolve this issue. You can remove the ring back tone or contact your cell phone provider to request that the CodeRED message phone numbers, 1-855-969-4636 and 1-866-419-5000 are bypassed to ring normally.

A Issues Warning about Marketing Company

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has issued a warning that a marketing company is using two toll-free numbers that are very similar to toll-free numbers used by the Veterans Benefit Administration (VBA). The marketer is trying to get callers to sign up to receive a Walmart gift card and is asking for personal data, including credit card information. When asked if they are the VA, they reply vaguely and explain that the VA is very busy and the call was directed to them. They don’t say they are the VA, but they say they can help with VA benefits, if asked. In addition, they even offer to transfer the call to the VA, after the caller provides the credit card information to get the free Walmart gift card.

This issue has been reported to the Office of the Inspector General and the Federal Trade Commission for review. The two numbers identified in this alert are:

• 1-800-872-1000, which is very close to VBA main number of 1-800-827-1000; and
• 1-888-442-4511, which is very close to the GI-Bill number of 1-888-442-4551.

The VA recommends that veterans who feel they have disclosed personal information to an unauthorized individual should immediately contact their credit card companies to advise them of the situation, review transactions, and request that a new card number be issued. Veterans can request a free credit report from credit reporting agencies. In addition, the VA requests that veterans contact the FTC at 1-877-382-4357 and file a complaint.

Top 10 Digital Preparedness Tips

  1. Tell your friends & family you are OK via text, email, Twitter, Facebook and other social media.
  2. Learn how to send updates via text and internet from your mobile phone to your contacts and social channels in case voice communications are not available. Avoid calling by phone.
  3. If you have a life-threatening emergency, call 9-1-1. Remember that you cannot currently text 9-1-1. If you are not experiencing an emergency, do not call 9-1-1.
  4. Save important phone numbers to your phone.
  5. Keep charged batteries and car-phone chargers available as back-up power for your cell phone.
  6. Conserve your cell phone battery by reducing the brightness of your screen, placing your phone in airplane mode, and closing apps you are not using that draw power.
  7. Immediately following a disaster, resist using your mobile device to watch streaming videos, download music or videos, or play video games, all of which can add to network congestion. Limiting use of these services can help potentially life-saving emergency calls get through to 9-1-1.
  8. If you do not have a cell phone, keep a prepaid phone card to use if needed during or after a disaster.
  9. Charge your digital camera or buy batteries for your film camera if you need to document storm damage afterwards.
  10. Get connected with us through the tools listed on this page: texts, Twitter and more.
