In an effort to improve communications with the public and businesses, Denton County Emergency Services has contracted with Everbridge Inc., to provide mass notification services for urgent and emergency needs.
Those wishing to receive alerts will need to sign up under the new provider here.
County emergency officials said that the new service should continue to provide the timely notifications via: phone, text, email, and TTY services. It is also possible to input multiple addresses and devices under a single account to provide warnings that are geographically important.
The new Everbridge system will continue to provide subscription based weather notifications sent automatically from the National Weather Service and will be distributed based on geographical relevance.
Those with questions about the new alert system can call Denton County Emergency Services at 940-349-2840.
