How does the Safe Communities Alert Network work?
When you sign up, you’ll be asked for your location. You can enter your home address and other locations important to you, such as a school, workplace, or a relative’s home. Next, you’ll be asked for any phone numbers, e-mail addresses, or text message numbers where we can reach you.

In a crisis, we’ll use your contact information to reach you with important information about what’s happening and any steps you need to take to protect yourself or your family. For example, we might warn you of a chemical spill threatening your area, give you details on evacuation, and let you know when it’s safe to return home. We’ll use all your phone numbers, e-mail addresses, or text message numbers one-by-one until we reach you.

NOTE: This system is powered by Everbridge. When you receive an alert, please do not call the phone number, as the system is automated and there will be no one to answer and no ability to leave a voice mail.
