Franklin County Alerts
Sign up to receive emergency alerts and severe weather warnings that could directly impact you and your family.
Franklin County is able to send you emergency alerts via text message, email, pager, or voice call (in extreme cases), based on your preferences. It is important that we collect this contact information because many households no longer utilize traditional land-based telephone lines.
This service, powered by AlertSense, allows fire, police and other emergency response agencies to issue emergency alerts to warn citizens of events such as severe weather, fire, flooding, hazardous materials, need for immediate evacuation, civil danger, local area emergencies, and missing persons.
SIGN UP today and share the types of alerts and notifications that you would like to receive, as well as your contact information and preferences.
Enter your PHYSICAL address and zipcode to receive advanced warning of severe weather or emergencies that directly impact the area in which you live or work. In the event of a life threatening emergency, alerts will be delivered to you through priority channels including phone calls and/or priority text messages. Non-emergency notifications are received through text and email.
Emergency voice alerts sent from the County will come through with the following CallerID displayed: (877) 957-9563. If you would like to hear the last message repeated, simply dial the CallerID number.
These alerts are provided free of charge, however standard text messaging rates and other charges may apply.
