Provo Emergency Alert Program

Provo From Squaw Peak at dusk_steve jibson 2

We have launched a new Mass Notification service! You can now get alerts about emergencies and other important community news by signing up for Provo City’s Emergency Alert Program. This 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. It is critical that we are able to send out emergency information to the public. When you sign up, you are ensuring that we have the most up-to-date information to reach you in the event of an emergency.

We also have established a subscription-based alert system that will allow you to receive various notifications about things that matter to you. You can sign up for different subscription alerts in multiple cities. When you sign up, you will be prompted to sign up for Alert Subscriptions if you wish. This is optional, and you can manage your subscriptions at any time.

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. If requested for the notification, you can confirm that you have received the message and you will not be contacted by any subsequent methods regarding that  particular notification. If you do not confirm, the system will continue to attempt to reach you at all of the contact paths that you have registered.

The following cities are participating in this program: Alpine, Cedar Fort, Eagle Mountain, Elk Ridge, Fairfield, Genola, Goshen, Highland, Lehi, Payson, Pleasant Grove, Provo, Salem, Santaquin, Saratoga Springs, Vineyard, Woodland Hills and Utah County unincorporated.

    Instead of having to create an account (and invent a username and password), is there a way to sign up by just texting a number?

    DONE ! good idea.

    Provo isn’t an option on the website (only Lindon, Orem, Spanish Fork, and Springville-Mapleton)…..? Do we just select Orem?

      Hi Emily, those city’s you have listed are not participating in our mass notification system but are doing their own independent system. To sign up for our notification system you have to click “Sign Up” – you will create a log in, give your location information, and at least two forms of contact information. Then you will be able to select “Provo City” as the city you would like to receive alerts for.

    There’s some really good alerts in this list, as well as some nice-to-know items. Thanks to those that set this up.

    I did notice the lack of other immediately-affecting things like fire, law enforcement, and disaster alerts. What is the possibility of getting those added to Provo’s list of alerts?

    I noticed a few other municipalities had fire and law enforcement, so those don’t seem like an impossibility to set up. For the disaster alerts, I’m wondering if this could get tied into the emergency siren system employed in Provo’s participation of The Great Utah Shakeout last April.
