The first priority for getting emergency fire information is to make sure you are signed up for official alerts on Everbridge and Nixle. See our blog post for details about how to get signed up.
Additional steps you can take to stay informed:
- If there is a Neighborhood Fire Safe Council in your area you should also make sure you are included on their phone tree.
