Penn Township Alerts

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

Penn Township is able to send you alerts via text message, email, pager, or voice mail (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. 

The system is intended to be used for emergency AND non-emergency alerts, and important messages from Penn Township that may have significant impacts to the area. Alerts could be related to specific hazards that require some kind of action be taken such as evacuation, or shelter in place, etc. Non-emergency alerts could include significant issues related to road concerns, police or fire activity, or important township business. You may select which news you would like to receive alerts on during the sign-up process. The Emergency Alerts group will not be used to send routine information. In addition to receiving information on your wireless device, you may also receive notification on your land telephone line (if you have one) depending on the type of incident or event. 

Please consider providing 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, this is especially pertinent to Penn Township residents.

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 PennTownship to 38276.  There is also a mobile app available.
