Emergency Alert System Upgrade
To provide citizens with the best technology available, the City of New Orleans migrated its emergency alert system to a new notification provider in the summer of 2012. We recently upgraded that new alert system to provide citizens additional alert options, including over 50 weather alerts directly from National Weather Service.
If you registered in the old NOLA Ready emergency alert system (pre-Summer 2012) and want to continue to receive emergency alerts, you must click the link below to register, click "Create New Account" and re-register by July 31, 2013. After July 31, 2013, citizens in the old system will no longer receive alerts, unless you re-register yourself at a later date.

Types of Alerts
When you register for the emergency alert system you will automatically receive any city-wide emergency alerts. In addition, you can select to receive alert specific kinds of emergencies, including Power Outages, Road Closures, Boil Water Advisories, Flooding, Parades/Second Lines Road Closures, etc.
Tell us what ways you want us to try to contact you with emergency information: home/work phone, text messages, email address, etc.
In our upgraded system, when we send an alert, if you do not confirm receipt of the message on the first contact device you list, the system will try your additional contact numbers or emails. Messages will go to each device until you confirmed you received the message. Our citizens’ safety is our number one priority and we are pleased to be able to offer this alerting system to our citizens.
Please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your list of safe senders so that our emails will reach you. Your information will never be redistributed or used for anything other than emergency alerts.
Choose to receive alerts about multiple specific neighborhoods, including around your home, workplace, your child’s school, etc. Add additional addresses to allow us to better notify you when an alert might impact your family or work.
Should you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact the Office of Homeland Security’s Preparedness Team at email@example.com.
