How will you receive the alerts?
The Safe Communities Alert Network system will send emergency messages to voluntary subscribers through the following means (depending on what method(s) you select when signing up):
• home phone
• work phone
• cell phone (work and/or personal)
• email (work and/or personal)
• SMS text messages
• mobile app (available for Android and iPhone)

Subscribers can manage in what order they would prefer to receive alerts during the sign-up process. These settings can be managed by the subscriber after signing up as well.
• Email notifications will be sent from “Safe Communities Alert Network”
• Telephone notifications will be sent from call display 999-999-9999. You can save this number in your phone as “Safe Communities Alert Network”
• Text message notifications will be sent from call display 89362. You can save this number in your phone as “Safe Communities Alert Network”

Please note: the alerts will be sent only until you confirm that you have received them. For example: if you receive an alert to your landline and confirm you have received it, the system will stop trying to reach you and you will not receive the alert through the additional phone numbers or emails that you signed up with.
