It’s fast, easy and it could save your life.
Register your mobile number with local Reverse 911 services to help keep your family safe during and after natural disasters such as: wildfire, flood, severe weather; and emergencies such as: chemical spill, gas leak, active shooter, terrorism, police action and more.Set Up Reverse 911 Alerts
When natural disasters, community emergencies, or industrial accidents such as wildfire, flood, severe weather, chemical spill, or police action occur, local emergency responders send alerts through various emergency notification systems. Reverse 911 is the most effective and can target all residents in a community down to a single address.
Wireless Emergency Alert systems can broadcast messages to unregistered mobile devices but have limited range and message length because they rely on recipients being inside affected areas. However, Reverse 911 can send more precise warnings and instructions no matter where you are if your mobile number and physical address are registered with local Emergency Responders.
Do you rely on TV, radio, social media or word-of-mouth for emergency information? By the time you receive instructions that apply to your area it could be too late. Register your mobile number and physical address with a local Reverse 911 system so you won’t miss critical notifications that only affect you. Reverse 911 alerts can be sent as voice, email or text up to 20 minutes before other sources.

The Emergency Plan Workbook really opened my eyes! It never occurred to me that local officials and relief workers are only on the scene after a disaster and cannot help everyone.

It only took a few minutes to register all our smartphones to receive emergency alerts for: home, husband’s work, and kids’ school addresses. I'm so happy I did this!

Two years ago a serious wildfire came through here and the year after severe flooding. It was a nightmare trying to get information. SafetyInformed showed me how to get emergency alerts and prepare for next time.
