Alert SouthBay

Alert SouthBay

On March 2, 2020, Rancho Palos Verdes and 12 other South Bay cities launched Alert SouthBay, a regional emergency notification system.

Alert SouthBay is an opt-in alert system using the Everbridge software application. Similar to Nixle alerts, Everbridge sends notifications via email, text message, cellular and landline phones. Users can subscribe to receive alerts from multiple South Bay cities. If you live in Rancho Palos Verdes, for example, but work in Torrance, you can subscribe to alerts from both cities.

Everbridge will act as the City’s primary vehicle for emergency communication. It will be used for a range of notifications, from traffic alerts due to roadwork, water main breaks or police activity, to critical emergency communications, such as shelter-in-place or evacuation notifications.

Users can sign up by:

  • Texting “alertsb” to 888-777, which returns a link to register for Everbridge (for COVID-19-related alerts, text the keyword "cv19rpv") 
  • Registering online at alertsouthbay.com
  • Downloading the free Everbridge app on an iOS or Android device from the App Store or Google Play. Select “Find an organization or subscription” and search “alertsb”

UPDATE 3/31/20: Due to COVID-19 related communications, City listserv names and uses will remain unchanged until further notice.
