Register for Emergency Alerts
Williamson County faces incidents and disturbances daily, whether they be related to traffic and transportation, health and safety, or natural disasters.
We all want to be prepared for the worst. We often check social media, use navigation apps, and turn on the TV so that we can stay informed and be ready. Another resource to have on hand is the Williamson County Emergency Alert System.
Williamson County Emergency Alert System
When there is a safety emergency in your area, local public safety officials can send you a notification via text, a phone call, the mobile app, and/or email.
This system is shared between the City of Franklin, City of Brentwood, City of Spring Hill, City of Fairview, Town of Nolensville, and the Town of Thompsons Station.
Messages can go out to only those who live in the geographic location of the incident, or out to the entire county. So it’s important to register with your proper home address! If you want to receive an alert based on your location of work or for a family member who lives in a separate household, you will need to register for those addresses separately.
The registration process:
- Visit https://member.everbridge.net/3531635643383845/login
- Click sign up
- Create a memorable username, and then fill out the remaining sections.
- Add in the locations that you wish to receive notifications within Williamson County
- If you are registering for yourself or a loved one, make sure to select any individual special needs. This helps first responders know how to respond in the event of a disaster.
- Select the types of alerts that you wish to receive from the system, weather or community-related.
Registering for the alert system will help you be ready when disaster strikes with notifications directly from public safety.
Williamson County Outdoor Warning Sirens
The sixty (60) outdoor warning devices used by Williamson County are electronically activated sirens. They are commonly located at schools and county facilities. The outdoor warning siren system is designed to provide those who are outdoors at the time of the alert with ALERT WARNING signals. These signals are consistent with standardized warning signals for outdoor warning devices that have been established by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
The county’s outdoor warning system is not intended to be the only means of emergency warning. Outdoor warning systems are not designed to be heard indoors. For a well-balanced system, the use of indoor warning systems, such as a NOAA weather radio, commercial radio and television, or alert apps are also necessary.
