Don't think hurricanes impact Atlanta? Think Again!

Hurricane season is from June 1st - November 1st.  While coastal residents face the most danger in the event of a tropical storm or hurricane, residents who live further inland face the possibility of strong winds, heavy rain, and inland flooding.

Be Ready

  1. Make a Plan-  Your family may not be together during an emergency, so having a plan that everyone is familiar with is important.  Make sure you include a meeting place, important phone numbers, and ways to get emergency alerts in your plan.   
  2. Assemble a Kit- Assemble an emergency kit well in advance of an emergency.  You may have to evacuate at a moment's notice and take your essentials with you.  You may need to survive on your own after an emergency.  Know what you need in your kit.  
  3. Stay informed- Emergencies can happen anywhere, anytime.  Know what to do before, during, and after an emergency is a critical part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count.  Sign up for a local emergency alert system such as the City of Atlanta's NotifyATL, ReadyGeorgia, or local news alerts.  

 What is NotifyATL?

Get alerts about emergencies and other important news by signing up for our Emergency Alert Program, NotifyATL. This system enables the city to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe winter weather, unexpected road closures and evacuations of buildings, as well as community events.  You will receive real time messages however you specify, such as to your home, mobile or business phone, by text message and more. You pick where.  You pick how.  Click the banner to sign up today!
