Emergency Notification System
Alert Plymouth allows the city to inform the public of community-wide and localized emergencies, as well as other significant situations that may affect public safety or city services.
Alert Plymouth will only be used to issue public safety and emergency messages, not to relay weather forecasts or information about city events or news. In 2015, the City of Plymouth launched Alert Plymouth, a mass notification tool used to communicate with residents in an emergency.
How it Works
Alert Plymouth can notify residents of emergencies via call, text or email – in whichever order the subscriber specifies. Residents and businesses listed in the White or Yellow Pages are included in the Alert Plymouth system and can receive notifications by land-line phone. However, in order to receive texts, cell phone calls or email messages, residents must sign up.
When the city issues a notification, subscribers can confirm receipt of the message. Once the system receives confirmation, it will not contact by any subsequent methods (i.e. text, call, email) for that particular notification. If the system cannot confirm receipt of the message, it will continue to attempt to reach the subscriber using all of the registered contact paths.
Residents are encouraged to include their home or business addresses when signing up, as it enables the system to send geographic notifications in the event that an incident affects a specific area of the city.
