Will I still get emergency notifications if I don't sign up?

If you don't sign up, you will still receive notifications on your traditional wireline phone, but nowhere else.

The VTALERT ENS - Emergency Notification System utilizes the state's Enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1) database for location-based notifications to the public for life-threatening emergencies. The E9-1-1 database includes only traditional wireline telephone numbers in the state. If you want the system to be capable of sending you alerts to other communication devices that you use, then you must provide your contact information by logging in to the VTALERT Citizen Alert Sign-Up Web Page which is accessible by the link provided below.
