Swift911 Public leverages the amazing power of SwiftReach's Swift911 Alerting Platform which is used by counties, cities, municipalities, emergency management, corporations and more!
Keep yourself informed in case of any emergency with SwiftReach's FREE Swift911 Public mobile app.
Your county, town or business must have a Swift911 account for you to receive alerts from them. If they do not have an account and you'd like them to provide this capability, please let them know.
NOTE: You will only receive alerts if the county, town or business is a SwiftReach customer.
After completing the simple registration process you will be ready to receive emergency and informational alerts. Alerts from counties, towns, cities, businesses and event venues may be subscribed to on an opt-in basis. Critical emergency alerts may be received simply by being within proximity of the emergency with no opt-in necessary.
By reading your GPS location, Swift911 Public can notify you when there's an emergency at a sporting event or any other public venue. You have the option of disabling location services (GPS) at any time.
You can search for and subscribe to alerts from your town or the city you live in. You can also subscribe to alerts from other areas where your relatives may live or where you own a secondary home.
You have the ability to determine how you will be notified. Notification options include voice phone calls, emails, text messages and more! Provide information about functional and access needs such as requiring a wheelchair so that emergency personnel know what to expect if there is an emergency at your home. Attach photos of your home to your profile so it's easy to find in case of an emergency.
Voice alerts can be played back directly in the app. Email and SMS alerts also can be viewed within the app.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Only need one form of notification
Overall, it is nice to get notifications. I don't like that it calls and texts me. I only need the text message, not both. There is nowhere in settings to limit notifications to text messages only. I got the app for weather alerts when I found out the city sirens can't be heard where I live. Most alerts tend to be for missing people and normally they are found shortly after the notification.

Thank you for your response. I'm glad you like receiving the notifications. The municipality can select the channels they wish to use to send messages. However, if you want to only receive text messages, visit the login screen to the Swift911 portal on your municipality's website. There is an 'unsubscribe' area for you to unsubscribe from receiving emails and phone calls. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
Waste of an app
The app forces you to pick one city and states that you can add several cities and your county later under add subscriptions. I live in an area that has several small cities right next to each other and would like info on them as well as my county. After over 47 min of searching it still hasn’t given me the option to add anything else. This is the EMERGENCY app that my county chooses to use and I am not able to gain full benefit from it. Ridiculous

Hi - I'm sorry you're experiencing difficulty with the Swift911 Public App. The smaller cities in your area may not be SwiftReach customers, or have lists publicly available for subscription. However, by signing up for alerts from your county and any additional lists that they offer, you have signed up to receive important information from your county directly. If you have any questions about the alerts or types of alerts, we would suggest that you reach out to your county. Have a nice day!
No Preference Settings
I get 2 calls, 2 texts, and and an email every time a notice goes out. I do not want this. Do not call me- ever- let alone 2x. Users should be able to choose how they want to be notified about non-emergency matters. My community uses this service to notify residents of all kinds of events: National Night Out, street closures, etc. Those types of things do NOT require multiple points of contact. Without preferences the application is a nuisance and will be deleted.

Hi there - I'm sorry you're experiencing an issue with the frequency of alerts. The frequency of alerts and types of alerts that are sent via the Swift911 Public app are determined by your town/county/municipality. We recommend that you review the lists you are currently subscribed to in order to ensure you are subscribed to all the lists that you want to receive alerts for. If you only want to receive text messages moving forward, please visit your municipality's website and find the Swift911 web portal. Here you will be able to unsubscribe from receiving phone calls. I hope this is helpful. Thank you!
