About Russell Muniz

Attention Residents:
FPL is starting a hardening project to install underground HDPE conduit in order to provide better service during storms. The work will take place on SW 61 Court, SW 63rd Street, and SW 186th Way. It will begin Monday 2/3/20 and should last about 3 – 5 weeks.

The Town of Southwest Ranches is proud to announce the launch of our new CodeRED community notification system to send important alerts and time-sensitive messages to staff members and residents. Along with emergency and critical messages, the CodeRED notification system will also enhance community engagement via the release of important but non-emergency information such as road closures and trash collection schedule changes, and other Town services.

• Registration for this notification service is customized, allowing residents to choose which alerts they’d like to receive, as well as their preferred channel.
• Residents can select several different methods including landline, cell phone, email, text message, TTY, or even a combination. These alerts can be specific to streets, or neighborhoods, so individuals within affected areas are sure to receive relevant information.
• Residents and visitors can keep track of alerts in our Town with the CodeRED Mobile App, which notifies smartphone holders of real-time alerts in the area. Similar to the online registration, users choose which notifications they’d like to receive via the app.

Broward County has launched the lifesaving Yellow Dot safety program. The program is designed to assist Broward County residents and first responders in the event of an automobile crash or other medical emergency involving the participant’s vehicle. The program can help save lives by improving communication at a time when accident victims may be unable to communicate for themselves.
