In the event of an emergency or severe weather, an alert will be sent by voice, text, and/or email to the number provided by you. Additionally, you may request other types of notifications impacting your location by selecting them from the list below.

This is a free service provided by Knox County; however, normal messaging fees may be applied by your service provider. To receive text messages to your cell phone, your cell phone must have text messaging capabilities. NOTE: Knox County cannot guarantee notifications will be received by the intended recipient as notifications are dependent upon external providers (phone carrier, cell phone provider, email service, etc.) By registering below, you will not receive unsolicited calls, and neither the County nor its system vendor will sell or otherwise provide your information to others.
