The North East Regional Homeland Security Council has launched a new mass notification system that allows Riley County to alert local residents in both emergency and non-emergency situations. To participate, you must opt-in by entering your contact information and subscribe to notifications you desire based on your locations.
Register now to receiving weather, traffic and other emergency alerts for Riley County. You will be able to choose cell phone, SMS text, home phone, email, or fax to receive messages. There is no charge to register for the service.
Pottawatomie County will use the Everbridge emergency notification system to alert residents about a variety of events, ranging from severe weather, fires, floods and other emergencies, to more routine announcements, such as road closures and water utility maintenance. Messages will be sent to residents on their preferred contact paths—cell phone, SMS, home phone, email, fax, pager and more—to ensure real-time access to potentially lifesaving information. Everbridge allows citizens to self-register and manage their own contact methods.
Residents are encouraged to register immediately to receive these alerts. Individuals without internet access or a computer may contact the Pottawatomie Emergency Management Department at 785-457-3358 to sign up for emergency alerts.
