Forsyth County Implements Emergency Notification System

January 25, 2024

Recently, Forsyth County announced it is deploying “Alert Forsyth,” a new emergency alert and notification system. Residents who sign up for this free service will receive real-time alerts and instructions about imminent, local threats to health or safety via text messages, voice calls, or emails.

There are two ways Forsyth County residents and those who frequently visit or work in the county can sign up for the alert system:

1. Visit https://www.forsythco.com/alerts and click “Sign Up for Alert Forsyth.”

2. Download the Everbridge app on iOS and Android devices and search for “Alert Forsyth” to sign up.

When registering, you can choose your preferred alert delivery method(s) (text, call, email), the times you wish to receive alerts, and the kind of weather alerts you want to receive. Participants can also opt in or out of the notification system anytime.
