Westchester County has created an emergency notification system for its residents and people working in the county. The Community Emergency Notification System (CENS) will be used only in the event of a major disaster or catastrophe to disseminate important emergency notifications and updates.
If you are interested in non-emergency news, sign up for one or all of our Quick News bulletins.
We can use e-mail, text messaging, and/or phone messages to provide information to you before, during or after a major storm or other disaster. This information might include updates about emergency conditions, what to do, where to go or other critical details that residents should know.
This added effort is intended to supplement — not replace — information you'll receive from television, radio and other sources. Further, it should not replace individual and family emergency planning. Not to mention, those situations when direct communication from the county is simply not possible.
Select the category that pertains to you to begin the sign-up process.
