New Bern Alerts

Sign up to receive emergency alerts and severe weather warnings and notifications that could directly impact you and your family

The City of New Bern is offering a new emergency and mass notification system that sends alerts via text, email, or telephone based on your preferences. It is important that subscribers sign up for this free service and include your contact information as well as your notification preferences. . 

New Bern Alerts, powered by Civic Ready, is intended to be used for emergency alerts as well as non-emergency information that may have significant impacts to residents. Emergency alerts could be related to specific hazards that require an action to be taken – such as evacuations during a hurricane, sheltering in place, a boil water advisory, etc. Non-emergency alerts could include road closures, maintenance projects, planned outages, prolonged police/fire activity, etc. This list is not meant to be all inclusive, and demonstrates that this system will not be used for routine information. 

Please provide your address and preferred method(s) of contact. Adding your address will allow tailoring so you do not receive alerts that don’t pertain to your geographical area. 

These alerts are provided free of charge, however standard text messaging rates and other charges may apply.

If you wish to subscribe to SMS text messages only, text your zip code to 38276.  There is also a mobile app available.
