Will I still get emergency notifications if I don't sign up?

If you don't sign up, you may receive notifications on your land-line home or business phone. If you only have a cell phone, you MUST sign up to receive alerts.  To be certain you receive important alerts its imperative you register. 

What if my phone number or email address changes?


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 land-line phone numbers. If your land-line phone changes to another number, that information will be automatically updated annually. Click here to edit your profile.
