Neighborhood Meeting Alerts


Provo City participates in an alert program administered by Utah County. Everbridge gives citizens an opportunity to receive alerts regarding emergencies, road closures, public meetings, etc. Users choose which alerts to receive and how to receive them (phone call, text message, email). We have now added the ability to receive alerts for neighborhood meetings.

To receive alerts, create an Everbridge account at alerts.utahcounty.gov. You will be able to enter your contact information for these alerts and choose which alerts to receive. In the list of "My Alert Subscriptions," click on the "+" next to "Provo" to expand the list and see which types of alerts are available. Clicking the "+" next to each neighborhood area group will expand the list so you can see which neighborhoods are in each of those areas. Make sure you save your selections before exiting.

The Council office will send text alerts (text messages, emails) the week of a scheduled neighborhood meeting. Because of the way the system is configured, alerts will go out to the entire area (i.e., Central Area Neighborhoods).
