Alert SouthBay Emergency Alerts

Rancho Palos Verdes and 13 other South Bay cities are part of 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 is the City’s primary vehicle for emergency communications. 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
  • 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”
