Fairbanks Safety Alerts
AkGlobe News/10234802

~ The City of Fairbanks has launched Fairbanks Safety Alerts, an official emergency alert system powered by Smart911. Residents can sign up to receive text, email, and phone alerts during emergencies near their home, work, or school. Alerts may include missing persons, road closures, police activity notifications and more.

There are two ways to sign up for the service. The first is to create a profile and select which delivery types (email, text, etc.) you wish to receive and which departments you wish to receive alerts from. If you already have a Smart911 profile, you can log in to your current profile and select City departments. The majority of alert messages sent from the departments will be via text and email.

The second way is for those who do not wish to create a profile but would like to receive text message alerts from Fairbanks Police Department only. They can simply text FPDALERTS to 67283.

Smart911 is a free service that allows individuals to create a Safety Profile for their household that can include any information they may want 9-1-1 call takers and first responders to have in the event of an emergency. If they need to dial 9-1-1, their Safety Profile will immediately display on the call taker's screen saving critical seconds and even minutes in response to the emergency.
