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 911 (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.
The system is only as good as the information you provide. If your cell phone, work phone or email address changes, you must go to your VTALERT ENS profile and update the information. The one exception is traditional landlines. If a traditional landline changes to another landline number, that information will be updated.
It is the registrant's obligation to provide notification of any changes in registration data.
This registration information may be disclosed to third parties for the sole purpose of the emergency notification system or as otherwise required by law.
Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Safari should all work well with VTALERT. If you are having difficulties accessing the new VTALERT webpage, trying clearing your cache and browsing history. Safari is especially sensitive to this on IPhones and Ipads.
