Sacramento Alert

Sacramento Alert: Sacramento Region Emergency Notification System logoSacramento Alert: Sacramento Region Emergency Notification System is also operated through Nixle, but requires a separate sign up. Similar to the old Reverse-9-1-1 system, Sacramento Alert provides voice messages regarding emergencies, including at-risk missing persons, evacuation routes, and other public safety emergency information.

While Sacramento Alert provides service to the Sacramento region, 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.

All listed and unlisted landline phone numbers within the Sacramento Region are already registered with Sacramento Region Emergency Notification System. Cell phone numbers, Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) phone numbers, and TDD/TTY phone numbers must be voluntarily registered with Sacramento Alert.
