Connect Rowlett Emergency Notification Service

Spring is here and with it comes storm season. Weather conditions are closely monitored from our Emergency Operations Center in an effort to provide advance notification to our community in the event of a severe weather outbreak. We all know that the purpose of our Outdoor Warning System (big outdoor sirens around town) is to let people who are outdoors know to seek shelter during a severe weather event. Well, the City of Rowlett also has a system called Connect Rowlett to alert those who are indoors or away from home to approaching dangerous weather conditions so that appropriate safety measures can be taken.

Connect Rowlett is an emergency notification service allowing Rowlett residents to opt-in and receive information via phone call, text message, and/or email based on locations and subjects relevant to you. This system is used to notify residents of imminent threats to health and safety as well as informational notifications that affect home and/or work environments, such as severe weather, flooding, gas leaks, police activity and more.

Even if you don’t create your Connect Rowlett profile, emergency notifications will still be sent based on 9-1-1 data, but we do encourage you to sign up so that you can customize the way and to whom information is delivered. For example, you may still have a land-line in your home…but don’t even have a phone plugged into it anymore. With a Connect Rowlett profile, you can specify that we send alerts via text message to your mobile phone so you don’t miss them-and every member of your household can create their own profile!
