Know where to find information during an emergency
Fast, accurate and instructional information is
important in an emergency, and knowing in advance where to turn
for that information is a key step in being prepared.
The city of Aurora sends out emergency alerts via
the Everbridge notification system, but it's important to note
that this is an opt-in service for cellphones, so you will not
automatically receive emergency notifications from the city
unless you sign up: AuroraGov.org/AlertAurora.
You can choose to receive emergency notifications via text
message, email or phone call based on the address(es) you provide
in the city. Please note these are not weather-related messages.
The city recommends you have a NOAA weather radio or weather app
on your phone for such instances.
