Get alerted about emergencies and other important events via phone, cell, text, or email by signing up for our Citizen Alert Program.
This notification system helps local officials to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations such as fire, flood, unexpected road closures, missing persons, and evacuation of buildings or neighborhoods.
In the event of an emergency, local officials will use the Citizen Alert system's Reverse 911 function to call homes and businesses in the affected area. If you register other contact paths such as your mobile phone, work phone, or email, you can be notified even when you're not at home.
You specify how you want to be contacted. For example, you can tell the system to call your mobile and work phones in case of an Emergency Alert, but only send an email for a non-emergency Community Alert. You also specify which locations you care about, such as your house, your parent's house, or your kids' school.
