Welcome to ReadyMontco!
ReadyMontco (formerly known as ReadyNotify) is your official source for notifications about emergencies, severe weather, crime alerts and disasters in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Before getting started, please read the information below and check out the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
How It Works
When there is a potential safety hazard or concern in your area, you will receive a notification. Notifications come in many forms, including text messages, emails, voice calls, and mobile app alerts. The devices we will contact you on and the order in which we will do so is completely customizable. You might want a text message first, and then a follow up email. Alternatively, you might prefer an email first, with a voice call if you don't respond. You have to enter at least two contact paths, and can provide up to 11.
There may be situations in which public safety personnel will need to know if you have received a message. ReadyMontco enables us to do so. If you confirm that you have received the alert, you will not be contacted by any subsequent methods regarding that particular notification. If you do not confirm, the system will continue to attempt to reach you at all of the contact paths that you have registered.

ReadyMontco only sends alerts specific to Montgomery County. Therefore, the address you provide must be located within Montgomery County. Be sure to confirm geo-location of your address on the map pop up window to ensure that weather alerts are specific to your address. If you believe that your address of interest is located within Montgomery County and still have difficulty with registration, please send an email to [email protected]
The registration process also contains a My Information tab. If you, a family member, or someone you live with have an Access or Functional Need and will need assistance during an emergency, this page is especially important! It is up to each municipality to determine how they wish to utilize this information, and while it is not a promise of specialized service, it is our goal to use the information you provide to plan for disasters and other emergencies.
All personal information that you provide is used for emergency planning and is strictly confidential.
