Staying Informed When an Emergency Happens

Advance notice of an emergency - even just a few minutes - can make a big difference in your safety. Systems like Alert Montgomery can send notification to your mobile phone so you receive emergency alerts whether you are at home, work, or even running errands.

Often an emergency occurs without warning. Following an emergency, government officials will provide vital information about response efforts and ways to keep you, your family, and your community safe. Keeping open lines of communication will ensure that you know what is expected.

Having access to a variety of communication devices can ensure you always get the latest information.

Montgomery County uses several different media outlets to get information out to residents. This includes:
