Now is a good time to register and/or update your profile. Decatur implemented the national safety database Smart911 to improve 911 services for residents and business owners. Smart911 allows residents to create a safety profile of vital personal and household data, including household members, photos, medications or medical conditions and even pets, which will be displayed to 911 call takers immediately when a resident places an emergency call.

Currently, Smart911 Profile and Alert registrants will be asked two additional questions regarding their quarantine and health status. This information will be presented to 9-1-1 call-takers with an inbound call and public health/emergency management officials will be able to actively query and notify individuals in their community who are at risk or under quarantine.

Smart911 is a free service available to all residents and business owners and is private and secure. Safety profiles can be created through the Smart911 website.

On Thursday, March 19, City of Decatur Mayor Patti Garrett issued a Public Health Emergency Order that prohibits on-premises dining at restaurants; allows take-out and delivery services between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. daily; and allows restaurants with a current alcoholic beverage license to sell beverages for off-premises consumption in sealed containers; and prohibits gatherings of more than 50 persons.

Several City of Decatur restaurants have already voluntarily transitioned to a take-out and/or delivery model, closing their in-person dining facilities in order to reduce community transmission of the COVID-19 virus in response to CDC guidelines.

At the March 16, 2020 meeting, the City Commission passed a Resolution declaring a Public Health State of Emergency in the City of Decatur which grants the Mayor certain powers to protect the health, safety and welfare of the residents of the City. In introducing the Resolution Mayor Patti Garrett noted that while there has been a State of Emergency declared at both the state and the national level, an emergency declaration by the City ensures that the city is able to work at the local level in a very quick and expedient manner if necessary.

Residents are encouraged to continue to support our local businesses, including taking advantage of pick-up and delivery services.

Visit the City’s website to view the Order.
