Receive Alerts from Public and Private Agencies

If you are in Multnomah County, you can do it here.  Signing up for these notifications allows emergency response agencies to notify you via text, call or email when an emergency in your area may require you to take action (such as shelter-in-place or evacuation).  Persons with disabilities or who may need additional assistance during an emergency can provide additional information through the Additional Needs Registry when they sign up.

The FlashAlert® system gives you access to emergency messages, such as breaking news or weather closure information, and news releases from participating organizations.

Information on this page is updated annually prior to the winter weather season.  If you or your agency would like to see additional information on this page, please contact us by phone at 503.988.6700 or by email at
