By signing up for Sacramento Alert, you will receive location-based emergency alerts quickly at work and at home by providing all your typical locations as well as your phone numbers, email addresses, and TTY device information. We recommend downloading the Everbridge app onto your smartphone to make receiving location-based notifications even easier while away from home or work. The Everbridge app can be downloaded from Google Play and Apple’s App Store.
“Signing up for Sacramento Alert is a great way for you to help us help you in an emergency,” said Mary Jo Flynn-Nevins, Sacramento County Chief of Emergency services. “When you sign up, it lets local officials, public safety and emergency personnel provide you with real-time information so you and your family will know what to do or where to go in the event of a flood, neighborhood evacuation, major road closure, severe weather or other dangerous situation.”
All information in the Sacramento Alert Self-Registration Portal
is kept strictly confidential and you will only receive alerts that are critical and time-sensitive, including severe weather, wildfires, flooding, unexpected road closures, missing persons, and evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods in specific geographic locations.
You can choose how you want to be contacted – by phone call, text, push notification or email, and you can sign up for multiple locations that mean the most to you by registering your home address, work address, your parent’s address or your children’s school location in the counties of Sacramento, Yolo and Placer.
