What is Citizen Alert?

This notification system enables Iron County and the cities within the county to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as unexpected road closures, missing persons, and evacuation of buildings or neighborhoods.

You will receive time-sensitive messages using whichever method you specify, such as your home, cell, or business phone, email, text message, hearing impaired receiving devices, and more. You pick where, you pick how.

Please take note that most phone voice alerts caller id will be from (435) 867-7610, especially in an emergency. It may be a good idea to add this phone number in your contacts lists as “Citizen Alert” or something similar so that you know who it is calling you. Also, please understand this is not a phone number that you may call with questions. You must contact the agency that sent you an alert with any questions you may have.

Citizen Alert Overview

We have launched a new notification service that allows us to alert you to an emergency or an important community alert in your area. The system uses listed phone numbers. You may also enter additional ways of contacting you, such as cell phones, business phones, and email. The information you enter is protected and will not be used for any other purpose.

How this Notification System Works

When we issue a message about a potential safety hazard or concern, messages will be sent to all standard voice and text communication devices that you have registered, including landline phones, cell phones, e-mail, text message and more. If you don’t confirm receipt of the message, the system will try to reach your second contact number or email. The system will continue trying to contact you until it receives a confirmation from you.

Sign Up for this Notification System

Residents and businesses with listed telephone numbers have already been included in the system. You may use the registration link to include additional ways to contact you. All information you provide will be kept strictly confidential.
