Because of the unforeseen nature of some emergencies, no one can fully guarantee that you will receive a timely notification every time. Stay informed by also monitoring other reliable public safety warning and information systems (such as television and radio). You may also subscribe to local text alerts to your mobile device (see WHERE TO SUBSCRIBE TO NIXLE TEXT ALERTS under the Pages list below).


This site is no longer active.  It has outlived its purpose, and will no longer be used for information regarding incidents in progress.

We recommend that you subscribe to our NIXLE messaging system.  You can do so by clicking on the NIXLE link on the right or by going to and clicking on the Phone icon in the upper right. 

The NIXLE system has an associated email feature that essentially replaces this site, and better reflects activities in progress.
