What if . . .
A child was missing in your neighborhood and your help was needed.
There was a hazardous chemical spill and your family needed to evacuate.
After the storm goes through, where will you find recovery assistance for your family?
The City of South Milwaukee, in cooperation with AlertSense© system, is pleased to offer its residents a quick and reliable way of receiving emergency messages and alerts by phone or text message. This AlertSense© system has the capability of notifying residents by phone in the event of an emergency that affects your neighborhood. This is done utilizing a pre-established landline phone database.
In the event of an emergency, you may receive an automated phone call advising you of the nature of the situation and the appropriate measures to take. The caller will always identify themselves as being with the City and may leave a phone number for you to contact for further information. An added feature of this system allows people to sign up their mobile phones or other communication devices to receive these alerts by text message.
(NOTE: This is a free service, but normal text messaging rates based on your wireless service plan will apply.) It is not necessary to complete a registration for a landline telephone, these numbers are currently available to the alerting system.
Remember to always phone 9-1-1…
if you require immediate emergency assistance.
