Stay connected with Fort Worth Texas Alerts
Published on February 19, 2021
This week’s devastating winter storms have reinforced the importance of staying connected to local government. One way to do that is to sign up for Fort Worth Texas Alerts, an emergency alert system designed to provide warnings about potential hazards.
Alerts are issued by the Office of Emergency Management. When registering, residents can choose to receive optional weather warnings issued by the National Weather Service.
Frequently asked questions
If I was registered for Nixle, the previous alert system, will I have to reregister? Yes, you will need to reregister. Fort Worth Texas Alerts is a new system with added capabilities, so the data was not able to be transferred over.
How much does it cost? Fort Worth Texas Alerts is free; however, standard message and data rates may apply.
What if my contact information changes? The system is only as good as the information you provide. If your cell phone, cell phone provider service, work phone, address or email address change, update your profile and contact information. For this reason, during the registration process, it is important that you create a profile so that you can go back to change your information anytime.
Will my contact information be shared with others? No, the information that you provide will be used for emergency purposes only. We will not give or sell your phone numbers or email addresses to any vendor or other organization.
