The City has implemented a state-of-the-art emergency notification system to alert citizens about emergencies and other important community news. The emergency notification system, provided by Everbridge, enables the City to provide essential information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, fires, floods, unexpected road closures, or evacuation of buildings or neighborhoods.
SIGN UP FOR WEATHER WARNINGS
All citizens and businesses must sign up for the new system to receive Weather Warnings even if you had previously signed up for the old system. Although residents and businesses with listed landline telephone numbers have already been included in the system, you need to register online to opt-in to receive Weather Alerts.

Register to customize how notifications are sent and to include additional ways to contact you including mobile phone and the free App. All information you provide will be kept strictly confidential.
HOW EMERGENCY ALERTS WORK
The process begins when the City issues a message about a potential safety hazard or concern. Messages will be sent to all standard voice and text communication devices, including land line phones, cell phones, email, and more. If you don't confirm receipt of the message, the system will try to reach your second contact number or email. The system will continue trying to contact you until it receives a confirmation from you.
To receive important communications from the City, residents, business owners, and neighbors must register the voice and text communication devices where they wish to receive messages.
