Tompkins County Residents Reminded to Sign Up for SIREN Alerts Before End of the Year


The Tompkins County Department of Emergency Services is encouraging residents who haven’t created an account on the Tompkins SIREN alert system to do so before the end of the year.

Tompkins SIREN, or Safety & Incident Real Time Emergency Notifications, replaced the area’s prior Swift911 alert system. SIREN is used by authorities to send alerts to the community on potentially hazardous situations including weather, traffic and other emergencies. 

Residents of Tompkins County who’ve already created a Tompkins SIREN account and have chosen their notification preferences don’t need to do anything further.
