Notification Service

The City of Fate Department of Public Safety recommends that each citizen has access to more than one source for emergency notifications.  Below are a few recommendations for emergency notification services.

Smart Phone Apps

The Weather Channel (free)
Android: The Weather Channel - Android App
Apple: The Weather Channel - iPhone App

My Radar (free)
Android: My Radar - Android App

Text Message Service

If your phone does not have the capability of downloading apps, but can receive text messages, you can also sign up for the Emergency Text Notification Service through Rockwall County’s Emergency Management Department: Register for Nixle

NOAA Weather Radio

Also, don’t forget your NOAA weather radios, which are relatively inexpensive.  We recommend having it out when there is a tornado watch. You can even purchase one that has a little hand-crank for no-power scenarios. Here’s a link to one on Amazon for less than $20.
