NNALERT has launched for Newport News residents. Powered by Everbridge, a nationally recognized communications platform, NNALERT is the official emergency notification system for the City.
Residents sign up and choose the emergency notifications and other important alerts that they would like to receive. The time-sensitive messages are delivered by the method specified by the user—such as their mobile or business phones, email, or text messages. Residents can also designate Newport News addresses they would like to receive alerts about such as home, work or a child's school as some messages may be specific to a certain area of the City.
