How It Works
Weather alerts issued by the National Weather Service (NWS) are delivered to TFCC.
Once the weather alerts are received, they are automatically converted into messages and are sent to residents in the affected area who have opted in to receive
the weather alerts. All this happens automatically in a matter of seconds. Just like with other
notifications, users of TFCC Alert will be able to log in to the system to view the call
reports for weather alerts.
This technology uses polygon warning methodologies. This means that only those in the path of the severe weather will be notified rather than the entire county or multi-county area, decreasing the number of false alarms that are created with other notification methods.
How Residents Opt-In
Register to receive weather alerts via the online public
sign-up page. Enter your home address, home phone,
and cell phone number and select which weather alerts you would like to receive.
You can also register up to five additional contacts, such as parents, siblings,
and spouses, under your account. Alerts are sent for:
1. Severe thunderstorm warnings
2. Flash flood warnings
3. Tornado warnings
