[ARCHIVED] City launches new emergency alert notification system


As an extension of its new website with CivicPlus, the City of The Colony has officially launched a new and improved version of its emergency notification services for residents: CivicReady.

CivicReady is a communication service available to our residents to receive emergency notifications directly to their smartphone. Examples of emergency notifications include weather warnings (tornado, flash flooding, severe storms, etc.) and localized emergencies such as missing persons or mandatory evacuations.

Residents have the ability to customize their notification preferences by creating an account using an online signup form. CivicReady weather alerts come directly from the National Weather Service and may 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 alert you wish to receive. There is not one catch-all category.

We encourage all residents to sign up at today!

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.
