Residents must choose to opt-in to the system by registering. Please use the links at the top of this page to register for your Electoral Area.
Selecting devices to receive notifications
Residents may choose to register for any one or more of the following options:
- Home phone
- Cell phone
- Work phone
- SMS Text Message*
* Please note: telecommunications companies do not guarantee timely delivery of text messages. Residents are advised to register for a primary notification option in addition to SMS text message.
There are two options for being notified by cell phone: voice call and/or text message.
To sign up for voice calls, enter your cell phone number in the field labelled 'Cell Phone 1 (Voice notification).'
To sign up for text messages, enter your cell phone number in the field labelled 'Text Message/SMS (same number as Cell Phone 1 entry)'. After you submit the form, you will need to finalize your text message subscription.
To finalize your text message subscription, send a text to 32075 with START as the only word in your text message. You will receive two confirmation messages - one from your cell phone service provider and the other from the public alert notification system provider (ERMS).
To cancel your text message subscription, send a new text message using the word STOP to 32075. You will continue to receive notifications from other options you signed up for.
Please note: for text messages, message and data rates may apply and ERMS, the service provider, cannot guarantee message delivery. Please select a secondary notification method (voice or email) in addition to text message to ensure prompt and reliable message delivery.
Entering an address or location
Please ensure you provide a valid civic (physical address) located within one of these electoral areas in order to receive notifications. Please do not use your mailing address if it is different from your civic address.
If you do not have a civic address, please provide a description of the property (i.e. lot number) and enter a valid latitude and longitude. These can be obtained easily using Google Maps: find your property, click the location and Google Maps will display latitude and longitude at the bottom of the screen.
