The City of Galveston uses an Emergency Notification System to provide essential information quickly in a variety of situations. Alerts may be sent by the city to communicate news about unexpected road or street closures or the need to evacuate buildings or neighborhoods due to situations like hurricanes, severe weather, abnormally high tides, and water service suspensions.
Residents, business owners, and neighbors must register the voice and text communication devices where they wish to receive messages. Messages can be sent simultaneously in voice and text formats to all standard voice and text communication devices, including land line phone, cell phone, and email.
How to Sign Up
Register by adding your contact information into the Emergency Notification System. To protect the privacy of your personal information, a provision has been included in the city’s contract that maintains the confidentiality of your information.
Please note: Residents, businesses, and neighbors with listed telephone numbers have already been included in the system. You may use the registration link to register additional communication devices into the system.
For questions regarding the Emergency Notification System, please contact the Office of Emergency manager by calling 409-765-3710.
