Westchester County has created an emergency notification system for its residents and people working in the county. The county's Emergency Notification System will be used only in the event of a major disaster or catastrophe to disseminate important emergency notifications and updates.

If you are interested in non-emergency news, sign up for one or all of our county e-bulletins.

We can use e-mail, text messaging, and/or phone messages to send you information before, during or after a major storm or other disaster. This information might include updates about emergency conditions, what to do, where to go or other critical details that residents should know.

This added effort is intended to supplement — not replace — information you'll receive from television, radio and other sources. Further, it should not replace individual and family emergency planning. Not to mention, those situations when direct communication from the county is simply not possible.

Additionally, if you have a loved one or know of someone with special needs who lives in Westchester and may require additional assistance, transportation and/or sheltering in the event of a major emergency or disaster, enroll them in the county's Special Needs Registry.
