CivicReady Signup Instructions

Residents have the ability to customize their notification preferences by creating an account using the signup form below. CivicReady weather alerts come directly from the National Weather Service and can be received through text, email, and/or a phone call depending upon your selections and your address. When signing up, it is very important you include your physical address so that you receive weather alerts tailored to your location. Otherwise you will likely receive notifications of alerts impacting the entire county. Also, be sure to select each individual weather category you wish to receive. There is not one catch-all alert category.

In addition to weather warnings, the City may contact you through CivicReady in the event of a localized emergency based on your subscription preferences. View the signup form to see recent messages sent and available groups for you to join. Signup today to stay informed!

Please note: CivicReady replaces the city's previous emergency alert notifications via Nixle. If you were subscribed to Nixle and wish to discontinue, simply text "STOP" to 888-777. You may also manage your Nixle account by signing in.
