The Waco-McLennan County Office of Emergency Management has an emergency notification system for citizens to sign up for in order to be notified in case of an emergency event. This is not a real-time alerting system.
This phone and email system is designed to provide emergency messages to you quickly and effectively, should a need arise. You can include several locations in McLennan County to receive notifications for (ex. your home, workplace, schools, and more).
When an emergency or disaster event occurs, authorized McLennan County Office of Emergency Management personnel can notify you using this community alert system.
This does NOT preclude you from calling 911 for your emergency requests; it simply provides a means to disseminate critical information to the public via a mass notification system when the need arises.
**Please register using a computer, as issues have occurred when using a cell phone.
