InformMe Citizen Notification System
Frequently Asked Questions:
Emergency Alert Program

Our InformMe Citizen Notification System allows us to alert you to an emergency in your area or to provide notifications of many other service or community alerts. The system delivers messages to listed phone numbers as well as cell phones, business phones, email and text messaging. You decide the types of messages you want to get, the method of delivery and the priority of each method. The information you enter is protected and will not be used for any other purpose.

How InformMe Works

When we issue a message about a potential safety hazard, concern or service changes, a message will be sent to all standard voice and text communication devices that you have registered, including landline phones, cell phones, e-mail, 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.
