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.
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.
