Emergency Alerts Can Keep You Safe
PublicAlerts sends information about how to stay safe during an emergency. It can send messages by text, email, or voice message. It's available for anyone who lives, works, or visits the Portland-Vancouver Region. Personal information is kept secure and private. The service is free, but message and data rates may apply depending on your phone provider.
HOW TO SIGN UP
Each County Has a Different System
Each county uses a separate PublicAlerts system. Click on the map below or enter your address in the box. This will take you to your county's registration site. You can also find direct weblinks to the county registration websites below the map.
This system will only send alerts to the email addresses and phone numbers you provide when registering. If you live, work, and play in multiple counties, sign up in each county's system.
** Texting your zip code to 888777 will NOT sign you up for PublicAlerts. Read more about alerts to learn why.
