Bucks County Community Alert System Information

Community Alert System, www.readynotifypa.org, allows residents to receive emergency warnings via e-mail, text messaging, pagers, and other wireless devices.  Residents can voluntarily participate in this program by enrolling on a website and listing your community and the devices you would like included in the alert system. In addition to emergencies, you can also elect to receive notification of severe weather, amber alerts, health alerts and other warnings. It’s free to sign up and choose the type of alerts you want, however your wireless provider may charge a fee to receive text messages. You can also select the communities you want receive alerts for, so you can be alerted for multiple locations, such as work, home, and school.

Special Needs Registry

During an emergency, first responders may not be aware or able to accommodate special needs such as accessibility, mobility, and behavioral health issues if they are unprepared. A Special Needs Registry has been created to allow residents with special needs the opportunity to provide specific information to emergency responders. The database will track the needs of specific individuals so that first responders can be prepared to help them in an emergency. Please download or print the PDF and submit it to: jwilson@warringtontownship.org.
