Emergency Alerts

Why sign up

It is critical for Revere that City officials be able to communicate any important notifications to City residents, especially during any kind of weather or other emergency. This is especially critical because the City is a coastal community with portions of the City situated in flood zones. Officials want to provide important updates to residents related to closures, potential flooding, school and municipal office closings, and even instructions or evacuation information during an emergency. You can choose how you get these notifications, whether by phone, text, email, mobile app, or any combination of the four.

What alerts will you hear

The City will only utilize this system to disseminate urgent information that residents need, whether it be announcements of road closures or parking bans, or critical information about weather emergencies. This information will not be shared with any other entity, and you can opt out or change your settings after you have signed up.
