Warn Central Texas is a program promoting voluntary registrations for the regional notification system (RNS) used by the Capital Area Council of Governments and its regional government partners in Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Llano, Travis, and Williamson counties. The RNS program is powered by Everbridge, which allows local officials to contact people in their communities by cellphone, email, text or mobile app during times of disasters or public safety events.
Register now to receive regional notifications from local emergency response teams. Please note that City of Bastrop Emergency Management Personnel are currently utilizing the system through our partners at Bastrop County. We want you to be among the first to receive critical information about emergencies and community alerts regarding natural and man-made disasters like floods. By registering you will automatically be enrolled to receive emergency notifications, but you can also opt-in to weather and community notifications. The definition of each notification type are:
Emergency Notifications (or Emergency Warnings): Messages sent from local emergency response teams for natural and man-made disasters and events that could include actionable tasks such as shelter in place or evacuation instructions.
Weather Notifications (or Weather Alerts): Automated messages from the National Weather Service for events such as tornado watches and warnings, flash flood warnings, and severe thunderstorm warnings.
Community Notifications: Non-emergency messages sent from your local government.
