Sign-Up for Emergency Notifications

Posted: November 1, 2018

To receive emergency alerts and community notifications, please sign up for the Department of Emergency Management, AlertSense public alert system.

  • The system is intended to be used for emergency alerts, as well as non-emergency incidents that may have significant impacts to residents.
  • Emergency Alerts could be related to specific hazards that require some kind of action be taken such as evacuation, shelter in place, boil water orders, etc.
  • Non-emergency alerts could include significant transportation problems with prolonged impacts or significant ongoing police or fire activity.
  • This list is not meant to be all inclusive, and demonstrates that this system will not be used for routine information.
  • In addition to receiving information on your wireless device, you may also receive notification on your land telephone line (if you have one) depending on the type of incident or event.
