Stay Informed and Stay Alert
Did you know that the Town of Zionsville offers a mass notification alerts system for all residents and businesses? This is a free service that allows individuals to sign up for alerts to stay informed on severe weather, traffic and other emergencies, plus event and community updates.
When signing up:
Indicate what types of alerts you want to receive: Severe Weather, Public Health/Public Safety, Traffic and/or Community (see more below)
Add your address to receive geo-targeted alerts
Indicate how you want to be notified: by text, email and/or voice message
Type of alerts:
Public Safety/Public Health – emergency alerts related to public safety and health. Examples include Amber Alerts, evacuations, active police manhunts, etc.
Severe Weather – severe weather alerts directly impacting Zionsville. General watches will not be sent; this is for conditions that require heightened awareness.
Traffic – situations directly affecting traffic flow or road closures in and around Zionsville.
Community – Town-sponsored events and initiatives, parks programs, parks or trail closures, public surveys and polls.
When individuals sign up for alerts, their information is automatically also stored on the Smart911 secure online system. Smart911 is a free service that allows individuals to create a safety profile for their household that can include any information they may want 9-1-1 call takers and first responders to have in the event of an emergency. When a citizen makes an emergency call, their Safety Profile is automatically displayed to the 9-1-1 call taker, allowing them to send the right response teams to the right location with the right information.
Smart911 is a national service meaning your Smart911 Safety Profile travels with you and is visible to any participating 9-1-1 center nationwide.
