Register with Everbridge
With severe weather season upon us, we encourage all citizens to register with our mass notification software, Everbridge. This system allows the City of Forney to use the latest technology to increase its capability to notify citizens in emergencies.
Conditions under which the City of Forney and the Forney Police Department may utilize this system include:
- Tornado Warnings and tornado emergencies issued by the National Weather Service.
- A tornado or funnel cloud reported by reliable, official sources.
- Sustained winds in excess of 70 mph.
- Verified reports of half-dollar (1.25") sized hail or forecasts predicting ping-pong ball (1.5") or greater sized hail for our Community.
- Hazardous material spills or chemical release emergencies.
- Other emergencies as appropriate that affect public safety.
While registering is not necessary to receive alerts as Everbridge contains data from many sources with phone numbers, it does allow you to verify we have your correct information and confirm your notification preferences. Register at http://www.forneytx.gov/480/Emergency-Notification
