EMERGENCY ALERT NOTIFICATION SYSTEM

Alerts InfoIf we can’t reach you… we can’t NOTIFY, you!

What is the Emergency Alert Notification System?

The Emergency Alert system allows local officials to help protect lives and property by providing critical information to residents during emergencies, including dangerous situations. The system allows the Police and Fire Departments to quickly send out an emergency alert to residents in any affected geographic area in the city.  Depending on the emergency, the alert may be sent to the entire city or selected areas within the city. The current database includes only traditional wire-line telephone (the “land line” phone you may have in your home). If you want the system to send alerts to other communication devices that you use, you will have to provide your contact information by logging into the system and sign up for alerts.

After you sign up, Santaquin City will be able to contact you by text message, cell phone, home phone and/or email.

How does it work? When Santaquin City issues a message about a potential safety hazard, concern, or important information, messages will be sent to all standard voice, text and email communication devices, including listed landline phones. If you do not confirm receipt of the message, the Emergency Alert Notification System may continue trying to contact you until it receives a confirmation from you. Messages may be sent to the whole community, or just a neighborhood affected by an event.

Get alerted about emergencies and other important community news by signing up for our Citizen Mass Notification Program. This system enables us to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, unexpected road closures, missing persons and evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods.

Additionally, you can opt-in to receive information on community events you want to hear about.  You may update your information and interests at any time.
