Frequently Asked Questions
What is the emergency alert program?
This service allows you to sign up to get emergency alerts on your cell phone, work phone, text message, e-mail, home phone, and
more. You can also choose the locations you want to be contacted about. You can receive notifications about emergencies that may affect your home,
your parents' home, your workplace, and your child's school, as long as those locations are within the boundaries of the city.
The system will be used to notify residents about imminent threats to health and safety. Public safety officials will send alerts
about emergencies such as severe weather, floods, gas leaks, or critical police activity.

If you don't sign up, you will still receive notifications on your traditional home phone, but nowhere else.
The system is only as good as the information you provide. If your cell phone, work phone or email address changes, you must go to
your profile and update the information. The one exception is traditional landlines. If a traditional
landline changes to another landline number, that information will be automatically updated.
No, the information that you provide will be used for emergency purposes only. We will not give or sell your telephone numbers or
email addresses to any vendor or other organization.
