Launched by the City of Plymouth in 2015, all landline phone numbers listed in the White and Yellow Pages were added to the Alert Plymouth system – but the city did not have a database of cell phone numbers or email addresses.

Subscribers are asked to include their address, as it enables the system to geographically notify them of emergencies near their home or business.
