A new app is now available for the residents of Amarillo, Potter and Randall County.  This app will alert you about emergencies in the area.

The Amarillo/Potter/Randall Office of Emergency Management have teamed up with Ping4Alerts!    It's an app that residents can download and receive emergency notifications.

The app is available for download in the Google Play Store and also in the Apple Store.  The app is free and it is simple to download and set up.

You don't have to offer up any personal information just download the app and let it run in the background.  Any time there is an emergency in your area you will be alerted.  It works with your location.  However, the app does not keep a history of your location.

The app will be used to warn citizens of severe weather, flooding, hazardous material incidents, and even special events.   It's a great way to stay up to date on what's going on in your area.

We downloaded the app and it was an easy set up.
