You can stay informed about emergencies and other important community updates by signing up for the TuscALERT system. Aside from optional non-emergency notifications, this system enables us to quickly provide you with critical information in a variety of situations such as severe weather, unexpected road closures, missing persons, and evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods.
You can pick the weather alerts you are interested in and you will receive time-sensitive notifications by text, email, and/or phone call. Also, you can use the "Do Not Disturb" feature for weather alerts overnight which will limit notification to only tornado warnings (if your address is in the warned polygon) during the hours you specify.
