Residents Urged to Create Profile in New Platform
Ithaca, NY -Tompkins County Department of Emergency Response has announced that
Tompkins County SIREN is now available to all residents and will soon replace the current
Swift911 mass notification system. Tompkins SIREN, or Safety & Incident Real-Time
Emergency Notifications, is a free service that allows individuals to receive alerts sent from local
authorities to stay informed on potentially hazardous situations involving weather, traffic, and
other emergencies.
Tompkins County SIREN allows residents to receive alerts via phone, text and email, and answer
poll questions that will give local officials critical information during emergency situations.
Individuals who are signed up for alerts can also receive reliable information about the county’s
COVID-19 response and other public health notifications.
Individuals who were previously signed up for Swift911 will be automatically enrolled in the
new system. However, they are encouraged to create a profile in the new platform so they can
identify when and how they are alerted and communicated with before, during, and after
emergencies. Residents of Tompkins County who were not previously signed up for Swift911
should sign up for free at: https://www.tompkinscountyny.gov/SIREN or text SIREN to 67283.
They can also email SIREN@tompkins-co.org with any questions.
