The City of Pearland has migrated to an upgraded version of its Resident Alerts System, which is used to communicate with thousands of businesses and residents within minutes in an emergency.
To sign up to receive alerts, residents should visit pearlandtx.gov/alerts to self-register by providing the contact information they prefer. Messages can be sent to residents on any communication path desired – cell phone, home phone, email, text messaging, fax, pager, PDA and more – ensuring they receive life-saving emergency information and important public service announcements.
Through the system, the City of Pearland is able to alert residents about severe weather, fires, floods, toxic environmental issues and other emergencies. In addition, the City of Pearland uses the system to notify residents who opt in to receive traffic alerts, general city news and more.
“We have a commitment to our residents to protect them from any danger that threatens our community. The ability to reach all residents quickly during an emergency to warn them and provide guidance is critical to upholding that commitment,” said Roland Garcia, Emergency Management Coordinator.
“I encourage everyone to sign up for this service to stay connected and informed,” Garcia continued.
The City encourages every resident to sign up for this free service, in order to remain up-to-date in emergency situations. If a resident has previously subscribed to the system, they are still subscribed; however, they are encouraged to log in and update their information and subscription preferences.
