Hyper-Reach is the vendor DEM uses for Community Alerts (the ability to call your residence or cellphone with emergency information). Landlines are automatically registered, cellphones must be "opted in" by following the link below. It's important to choose Voice or Voice & Text to ensure you receive emergent Community Alerts. Please note the important difference for Weather Alerts as explained below.

IMPORTANT: Tornado alerts from the National Weather Service can be received through Hyper-Reach.  Voice messages are the default but you can choose text or voice.   For other, less imminent weather alerts, it is recommended to utilize a weather app of your choice so notifications can be customized to your liking.
