With the myAlerts app from AlertSense, you can receive life-saving emergency alerts from public safety agencies, advanced warning of severe weather and community notifications that impact you and your family.
Simply add the locations that matter to you. For example, you could identify your home, your child’s school, where your aging parent resides, the university where your older child attends, and your office. When you travel, you can enable the app to monitor your current location in order to receive any emergency alerts issued for the city or area you are visiting.
Types of Alerts I Can Choose to Receive:
Severe Weather Alerts
Receive advanced warning of severe weather when you or one of your locations is in the direct path of the storm. AlertSense receives feeds from the National Weather Service, automatically interprets the geographic area affected, and delivers targeted alerts immediately to app users when one of their locations falls within the impact area. You can tailor your alert settings by location, selecting the severity level for which you want to receive notifications. For example, you can choose to receive only the most severe weather warnings or all watches and advisories as well.
Public Safety Alerts
Receive emergency alerts from public safety alerting authorities, notifying you of situations that threaten the safety of yourself or those you care about. Public safety alerts include events such as crime, active shooter, imminent danger, hazardous materials, wildfire, floods and the need for immediate evacuation.
You can also choose to receive notifications of events in your community that, while not life-threatening emergencies, still impact your daily life and commute, such as road closures and power outages.
Please Note: If a location you enter is not currently covered by a public safety agency who utilizes the AlertSense Service, you will receive severe weather warnings but not public safety alerts or community notifications for that location. If your city or county does not currently utilize the AlertSense service, contact your local public safety organization and let them know that your community would benefit from this service.

Ratings and Reviews
Not very informative
We have a wildfire just down the road. Huge planes dropping retardant, fire trucks everywhere, getting text from my county department of public safety, but not a single alert or anything from this app. Great for letting me know about red flag conditions though. 🤷♂️ Excuse me, I have to get ready to evacuate now.
Still Seeing Old & Moldy Alerts
March 23, 2023
Since posting the review below, I have found another way to clear old (& no longer useful) alerts, remove then add the location covered by the alerts. This is slightly faster than deleting, downloading & reconfiguring the app.

I am giving a one star because it appears the developer is not interested in fixing this problem as I see people have been pointing it out for several years. There should be a means (e. g. swipe left or an Edit function that people could select alerts to remove.) What value is there in in keeping alerts that have have expired long ago still in the list? The only way I could find to remove the old alerts is to delete this app (which removes all data associated with the app), install it again & reconfigure the app. This sounds like the horrible things I hear about PCs!
Alerts faster than weather apps.
AlertSense is a fantastic app that alerts long before any of the weather app send alerts! Always the first to warn you of upcoming bad weather. Im not sure whats going on with the other bad review but i can asure you it definitely works perfectly on my iPhone XS Max! 90% of the time AlertSence warns me several moments before the Weather Channel app or any other weather app i have.
