Sign up for Provo’s Emergency Alerts! Our mass notification system enables us to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as: severe weather, law enforcement activity, missing persons, and evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods.
When we issue a notification about a potential safety hazard or concern, you will receive a message on the voice or text communication methods that you have registered, such as your home, mobile or business phones, email address, text messages and more. You pick where, you pick how.
Here’s what you have to do:
First – visit alerts.utahcounty.gov and click the “Sign Up” link.
Define your location – Then add at least one location to your account. Examples: home, work, school, etc. You must select one location within Provo City in order to receive notifications about Provo. (You may also opt to receive notifications about other cities in the next steps.)
Select your Alerts – You’re now able to select which alerts you would like to receive. Make sure to check Provo City or fine-tune your alerts by selecting the individual items you’d like to be notified about. Example: City Events, Traffic, Power Outages, etc. You may also select Utah County or any other cities you would like to receive notifications for.
Additional Information – You will now be able to add any other additional information to your profile – special needs, business details, volunteer skills, etc.
In the event of a real emergency, you are also advised to turn to local emergency broadcast stations, KSL-AM 1160 OR KBYU-FM 89.1 for further information.
