Get Alerts By Cell Phone
How will you receive disaster information if your power is out? What if you evacuate out of the area? Using the Community Notification Service, Pinellas County residents can receive emergency information via text messages on their cell phones.
To receive the alerts, call (888) 689-8905 from the cell phone you wish to register and enter your Pinellas County zip code. If you don’t have free text messaging on your cell phone, you will be charged between 5 and 10 cents per message for these alerts. The Community Notification Service does not work with pre-paid or pay-as-you-go cell phones.
Signing up is quick and you can opt-out easily at any time. Subscribing to this service will allow Pinellas County to let you know when you have to evacuate due to a hurricane and when it’s safe to go home. You will also be notified about other local emergencies.

Weather Alert Radio Save Lives
Severe weather can often strike quickly, even during the very early morning hours. An alarm from a weather alert radio can mean the difference between life and death because every minute counts in that kind of situation. Pinellas County Emergency Management staff strongly urges residents to buy a weather alert radio. Just like a smoke alarm, this radio can save your life. Weather alert radios can be found at many retailers, in catalogs and online.
