The North East Regional Homeland Security Council has launched a Mass Notification service that allows us to alert you in both emergency and non-emergency situations. To participate, you must "opt in" by entering your contact information and subscribing to the notification(s) you desire based on your location(s). It will be vital for each user to enter and maintain their user profile data with the most up-to-date information to ensure that when notifications are sent out that you receive them. The information you provide is protected and will not be used by any other third parties.

Residents are encouraged to register immediately to receive these alerts.

Riley County and the City of Manhattan will use the NE Kansas Notification system to alert residents about a variety of events, ranging from severe weather, fires, floods and other emergencies, to more routine announcements, such as road closures and water utility maintenance. Messages will be sent to residents on their preferred contact paths-cell phone, SMS (text), home phone, email, fax and more-to ensure real-time access to potentially lifesaving information. Residents listed in the IRIS Notification system will not be automatically registered in the new system, but Everbridge allows citizens to opt in or self-register, provide additional contact information, and/or opt out as needed.
