With your help your public safety departments have the potential of reaching thousands of people within a matter of seconds, allowing for businesses and citizens to protect themselves, and help the police solve crimes, find missing children, and avoid hazards.  We are not going to sell you anything through our alert system.  We will not follow or like you on social media nor does this give us access to do so.  These systems do not allow us to to "see" into your personal life.  The intent is to notify you immediately for your safety.  Our community is one of the safest in the nation due to our citizens not tolerating crime and staying informed.

Synopsis of how the system works:

You choose how you want to receive an alert or notice.

#1  Facebook

Public Safety and City Email Alerts:
         
     Click here for "Notify Me" located on the right side of the page in the "search" box.

     Choose emails, texts, or both by clicking the check boxes.  If choosing text messages, you 
     will be prompted to enter your phone number after checking the box.

     A dialogue box will come up explaining that you are not quite done - you will receive an email

#3  Twitter

      functions.  Please click here to contact your community officer.


#5  Code Red


     Whether using text to speech, recording a message or selecting a prerecorded message,
     your alert will immediately notify Phones, Cellular Devices, Text Messaging (SMS), Email,
     Info Lines, Pagers, TTY/ TTD devices, Computer Desktops, Signage and Social Media
     Platforms in seconds, allowing your message to be anywhere you need it.  This is the true
     emergency system to notify the public of a major event.

        click her for a form to send to the Fayette County Communications Center to be notified of
        any emergency at your business or residence.

#7:    YouTube

        Please subscribe to us on YouTube by clicking here.  Very little emergency alerts will be
        posted here.  This site is used more for educational purposes and for archiving longer videos.
