NOTIFICATION FAQ


What is the Community Alert Notification System?

This service allows you to sign up to get notifications from within several designated categories. These categories will provide information on city events, programs, meeting agendas and reminders of special meetings.  Other information may include reminders about voter registration deadlines, road closures, recreation programs, and other city events. Subscribers will be able to receive messages on their home phone, mobile phone, email or text message. 

What is the Emergency Alert Notification System?

The Emergency Alert system allows local officials to help protect lives and property by providing critical information to residents during emergencies, including dangerous situations.  The system allows the Police and Fire Departments to quickly send out an emergency alert to residents in any affected geographic area in the city.  Depending on the emergency, the alert may be sent to the entire city or selected areas within the city.  The current database includes only traditional wire-line telephone (the “land line” phone you may have in your home).  If you want the system to send alerts to other communication devices that you use, you will have to provide your contact information by logging into the system and sign up for alerts.
