How to Stay Informed

Your safety is our top concern- that's why the Village of Crete wants to make sure you know about emergencies and incidents as they happen.

The Village of Crete will use the emergency notification system powered by Everbridge to make sure you know about issues that may affect your safety. This system allows the Village of Crete to contact thousands of residents in seconds so you can find out about an emergency right away.

How Does It Work?

The process begins when the Village of Crete issues a message about a potential safety hazard or concern. Next, the emergency notification system sends a message through your primary contact path. If you don't confirm receipt of the message, the system will try to reach your second contact path and continues trying to reach you until you confirm receipt.

The success of this service relies on YOU. Having your latest contact information is the only way to ensure that we can contact you in an emergency. Please sign up here. It only takes a minute to enroll!
