Fairfax County Residents: Join Fairfax Alerts



Fairfax County’s new and improved emergency alert system, Fairfax Alerts, goes live on June 19, 2014 and fxalerts-logo-sloganreplaces the Community Emergency Alert Network (CEAN).  Fairfax Alerts will provide you with important information during an emergency, and allows you to choose up to 10 delivery methods for alerts like home phone, cell phone, email, and text messages.  You can also receive alerts for up to five locations like home, work, school and more. Users can customize the types of weather, traffic and public safety alerts they wish to receive and even create a “do not disturb” timeframe when they don’t want to receive alerts.
