The Community Emergency Notification System allows the City to rapidly notify residents and businesses of emergency situations and provide vital life safety instructions in a timely manner.
The system will continue to only be utilized during emergencies. Therefore, the system will call both listed and unlisted telephone numbers within the affected area and deliver the recorded message. If phone lines are busy, the system will attempt to redial those numbers to make contact. If an answering machine picks up the call, the emergency message will be left on the machine.
Benefits of Signing Up For Community Emergency Notification System
The system allows you to receive emergency notifications that affect your home. You don't have to purchase any new equipment and you'll only be notified of emergencies that affect the vicinity where your home or business is located.

The City of Richardson will not share or distribute personal information gathered by this form and will use it solely for the purpose of providing Community Emergency notifications and testing.
