Community Alert System
According to the City of Hemet Fire Department webpage, the City of Hemet and Cassidian Communications have instituted an improved notification system that will be able to send telephone notifications to residents and businesses within City of Hemet. This system is an upgrade to our former Reverse911 (R911) system and will be used by emergency response personnel to notify homes and businesses with information on emergency events and/or actions (such as evacuation) by way of voice message, text or email. The system utilizes our area’s 9-1-1 database, provided by the local phone company, and is able to contact land-line telephones whether listed or unlisted. The system is TTY/TDD capable.
Recognizing that some telecommunications systems may not always be reliable or functional in the event of emergencies, this system will bring another method of relaying important information to the citizens of Hemet while they continue to monitor other information sources (such as television and radio) for official information.
If you have a Voice over IP (VoIP) or cellular telephone and would like to be notified over that device, or if you would like to receive notification by email or text, you must register those telephone numbers and/or email addresses for use by the system. To register your VoIP, cellular telephone or email address, please enter the Self-Registration Portal at https://hemet.onthealert.com/ and provide the desired information. Each number and/or email provided will be added to the database. You will receive a confirmation email message to the address entered below once you have successfully registered. You will also be able to sign up for additional notifications (crime alerts & public service announcements.) All information will be kept strictly confidential.
NOTE: Unincorporated areas of Riverside County as well as the City of San Jacinto utilize Riverside County’s Swift911 alerting system. As our City borders both of these areas, we ask that all City residents dual register on both the City of Hemet and Riverside County altering systems.
