If there is a significant natural or man-made emergency in your area - flood, tornado, hazardous material spill, etc. - local officials have the ability to send messages to all standard voice and text communication devices you register making you aware of the situation and giving you instructions on how to respond by using a "Emergency Notification System".
Previously this system was limited to traditional land-line phones, so if you were away from home or only use cell phone services, you would not receive the information. The tri-county area of Guadalupe, Comal, and Bexar Counties have improved the system and now you can register your cell phone, pager, and/or email accounts so that your mobile contact information is included in the 911 database and you can receive emergency notifications via almost any mobile device.
If you would like alerts relevant to your home address, work, school, or even the home of a relative in the tri-county area, you can create a separate registration for each address and receive emergency notifications for those specific areas. Registration is simple, just follow the link below.
(The information you enter is for emergency notification purposes only and will not be shared with any other entity.)
