[ARCHIVED] Sign-Up!!!

Dear Residents:


In the event of a regional disaster or local emergency, quick efficient notification to our residents with clear and accurate information is the key to keeping you and your family safe.  One of the best ways to receive regional emergency notifications is from the San Mateo County (SMC) Emergency Alert System.  The best way to receive local emergency notifications is from the Town of Atherton’s Newsflash alert system.  These alerts can be received via cellular phone, email, text, Facebook, and Twitter.


To sign up for the SMC Emergency Alert System go to the following link:


To sign up for the Atherton local Newsflash alerts go to the following link, use your email address to sign in, then select ALERTS for the Police Department:


Currently only about 900 Atherton residents are signed up to receive SMC Emergency Alerts.  Only about 1,200 residents are signed up to receive Atherton Police Department Newsflash Alerts.  As a community of very engaged residents, I know we can and need to do much better than this in order to be prepared.


For the safety and security of you and your family, I strongly encourage you to sign up to receive SMC Emergency Alerts and Atherton Newsflashes today.  If you are already signed up, tell a friend to sign up...This will allow your Police Department and the San Mateo County Office of Emergency Services to help best protect and serve you in time of emergency and disaster.



Chief Steven D. McCulley
