[ARCHIVED] Sign up for Alert SouthBay

Alert SouthBay

On March 2, Rancho Palos Verdes and 12 other South Bay cities will launch 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
  • 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”

**Please note that emergency and traffic alerts will continue to be shared to the City’s Nextdoor, Facebook and Twitter pages, however, the City will only share these types of alerts on the Breaking News listserv for one more month to give subscribers time to transition to Everbridge.**

On April 1, the Breaking News listserv will be renamed City News and will be used for non-emergency City news. The Public Safety Alerts listserv will be renamed Crime Reports and will be used to distribute weekly crime reports from the Lomita Sheriff’s Station.

To edit your City listserv subscriptions, visit the Notifications page.
