Opt-in to Longview’s Emergency Alert system powered by Smart911
Please note: this is a new system that will be live as of February 15, 2020. Previous subscribers to the CodeRED system must opt-in with Smart911 if they wish to continue to receive local emergency messages.
Stay informed of local emergencies and severe weather by opting in to receive emergency alerts by phone, text, or email. The City of Longview’s emergency alerts are powered by Smart911 by Rave Mobile Safety. The service is offered in partnership with the East Texas Council of Governments, which provides access to the system for many cities and counties throughout the region.
Account users may sign up for free to receive phone call, text, or email alerts. In addition, users have the option to provide supplementary information like medical conditions, pet information, house description, and more, which could be helpful to first responders during an emergency situation.
The Longview Public Library will provide registration assistance for residents who may not have internet access or need help signing up for the alert system.
