Community Alerts

Community Alert System

The Borough of Red Bank is committed to ensuring the public is informed and receives timely notices, especially in the event of emergencies.  We encourage you to sign up for community alerts through two convenient channels, NotifyMe and CivicReady.  To view a list of active alerts, visit our Alert CenterClick Here!

NotifyMe is a text-based only platform for non-emergency and emergency notifications.  You can sign up for alerts based on your interests.  Notifications can be delivered by e-mail or text message only.  To sign up for

Civic Ready is our automated reverse telephone call system for emergencies - everyone is encouraged to sign up for this system.  You can choose to receive notifications to a landline number or mobile telephone number.  If you provide a mobile telephone number and/or e-mail address, you can receive text messages as well.  It is recommended that you include your physical address during registration to take advantage of an additional feature which allows for neighborhood-specific alerts.  To sign up for
