You will enter your contact information and subscribe to receive notifications about locations you care about in the “My Locations” section. Email is not needed for sign-up, but it does make it easier if you need to reset your password. There is an option to select a ‘quiet time’ when all notifications will be turned off, except for tornado warnings, which will override this setting. In the event of a potential safety hazard or concern, you will receive a message on the voice or text communication method you chose upon registering. These alerts are able to be sent to all mobile devices and landlines.
