Citizen Alert


Get emergency alerts and critical information during time-sensitive situations. Users receive notifications about citywide events, as well as events affecting specific Bloomington addresses, homes, workplaces, schools, and more.

Citizen Alert is designed for time-sensitive emergency situations and is not intended as an investigative tool or for announcing most weather-related events. Only situations that are deemed emergencies by public safety personnel will be sent.

Users receive Citizen Alert messages via the contact methods of their choice, including:

  • Home, mobile and business phones
  • Emails
  • Text messages

Users must provide at least one phone number (landline or cell phone). Users also have the option to request additional delivery options such as email, additional phone numbers or text messages.
