CITY OF PALM SPRINGS EMERGENCY

NOTIFICATION SYSTEM

 

Emergency Alerts

Register for Emergency Alerts to receive important emergency information.

The City of Palm Springs is participating in a Citywide Emergency Notification System that will provide timely and lifesaving information to registered residents, no matter their location.

The Everbridge system can send thousands of text and voice messages within minutes to home and business land line phones using existing white and yellow pages and 911 databases. The system cannot reach cell phones, PDA’s, computers, and devices for the hearing impaired, unless those cell phone numbers and e-mail addresses are registered with the system.  Registering takes only a few minutes through a simple online process. Anyone who lives or works in Palm Springs is encouraged to register their cell phone number and e-mail address.
