Join the Rave! (Smart 911)
Starting January 1, 2023, Sacramento County Office of Emergency Services and Folsom Police Department will be using Rave Mobile Safety (Rave Smart 911) to send emergency notifications to residents.
If you have previously registered with Sacramento Alert (Everbridge) or with Folsom Police Department Nixle, your information will transfer over to the new system. If you wish to change any information that you provided or change emergency alert notifications, you will need to create a new account at www.sacramento-alert.org or by texting 67283 from your smartphone.
Rave Smart911 provides voice messages regarding emergencies, including at-risk missing persons, evacuation routes, and other public safety emergency information.
While Rave Smart911 provides emergency notification service to all of Sacramento County, it allows messages to be geographically based. You will only receive messages that pertain to the locations you set. You can set up multiple addresses and phone numbers to help ensure that you are notified of emergencies near home, work, school, or any other location you choose.
