Eureka Alert! Community Notification System

Your safety is our top concern - that is why the City of Eureka wants to make sure you know about emergencies and incidents as they happen.

Beginning December 25, 2020, the City of Eureka will begin using the Eureka Alert! Notification System powered by Everbridge. This system replaces the current Code Red Notification system and will allow the City of Eureka to contact thousands of residents in seconds so you can find out about an emergency or event right away, receiving these important notifications via email, phone, and much more!

How Does It Work?

The process begins when the City of Eureka issues a message about a potential safety hazard or concern. Next, Eureka Alert! sends a message through your primary contact path. If you don't confirm receipt of the message, the system will try to reach your second contact path and continues trying to reach you until you confirm receipt.

How Do You Enroll for Notifications?

It's simple, as it only takes about a minute to enroll!

IMPORTANT - If the address you provided is not in our database of known addresses for our jurisdiction, you will be presented with other options to add your address into this system, including a selection from a list of suggested addresses, or dropping a pin to select your location on the map (Microsoft Silverlight plug-in is required). You will not receive any location-based alerts if you do not provide a complete address.
