    City Announces Detroit Alerts 365

    Detroit Alerts 365 Ways to Sign Up

    Want to receive timely emergency notifications regarding potential flooding, boil water alerts, public safety matters, and more? The City of Detroit has launched a new notification system called Detroit Alerts 365 that sends Detroit-specific emergency notifications to individuals who sign up. The City is using the CodeRED emergency notification system, which now operates in thousands of municipalities and areas nationwide.

    With this new, free system, individuals can choose to receive alerts via cell phone, landline, text, email, TTY, and/or social media. The high-speed system can reach people across the city in seconds, ensuring critical information can be quickly shared for situations such as:

    • Severe weather warnings from the National Weather Service
    • Public safety advisories
    • Flooding/natural disasters
    • Evacuation/shelter in place notices
    • Boil water advisories

    Among the many important benefits of Detroit Alerts 365:

    • Individuals receive important alerts and instructions based on the area around their address directly by cell phone, text, or email. To receive notifications, a Detroit address must be indicated.
    • The alerts can be targeted to specific streets, neighborhoods, regions, or the entire city.
    • The notifications will be sent based on the user’s preferred language (English, Spanish, Arabic or Bangla).
    • Users can register with multiple Detroit addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses.
    • Personal data is secure in the system.

    To register for Detroit Alerts 365, individuals should visit detroitalerts365.org and click on the Detroit Alerts 365 logo, or text DetroitAlerts365 to 99411.

    CodeRed Mobile Alert App

    Individuals can download the mobile app and receive notifications based on their current location. This would enable residents to receive emergency alerts if they are in any area where an alert has been issued, including another area of Detroit or any area of the country where the CodeRED emergency alert system is utilized.

    The CodeRED Mobile Alert App is a free download on The App Store and Google Play.
