Alert Program Descriptions
(951)506-5111 (Recorded Message)
Calling (951)506-5111 will connect you to pre-recorded information and updates to long-term emergency events happening in Temecula and/or surrounding areas. In the event of a substantial emergency, the Temecula Valley community can call to obtain information about road closures, evacuations and whether any public programs or operations may be affected.
Reverse 911 Phone Notifications
Reverse 911 is a communications tool that is used by the City of Temecula to deliver outbound phone notifications to it's communities and organizations affected by an emergency. It is so named, because 911 is the number used for members of the community/organizations to communicate with the police, where this system allows the police to do the "reverse", usually to inform the public of a known hazard.
Reverse 911 Cellphone/VOIP Registration
Verizon provides the City of Temecula with a directory of land line phone line subscribers. However, cellphone and VOIP companies do not provide the City with subscriber information. The City of Temecula has created a signup form that allows citizens to attach their cell phone number or VOIP number to their address to be notified by the above mentioned Reverse 911 system.
