Alerts & Notifications

Non-Emergency City Notifications

The City of Fayetteville offers non-emergency notifications through a system that  notifies citizens of road and lane closures, city-sponsored events, meetings, newsletters, bids/RFPs/RFQs, and more. These notifications are sent primarily through email, with some text messaging options available for time-sensitive categories.

Sign up for City notifications.

Please ensure you confirm your subscription(s) in your email or text inbox after signing up. You won't receive notifications until your subscription is confirmed.

Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) Through Your Mobile Device:

When the National Weather Service issues an urgent alert for your current location, the system looks to see which cell phone towers are included in the warning and sends out an instant emergency alert to WEA-enabled devices.  

These alerts on by default on modern Android and Apple devices. Emergency alert settings can be found in the notification settings on both Android and iOS. If you don't want to receive alerts about missing children or monthly tests, you can set your phone to only alert you only for "extreme alerts" like a tornado or severe thunderstorm. 

Wireless Emergency Alerts are free to all subscribers on a participating cell network and they don't count toward text messaging limits.
