Text and phone notifications are one of the best tools we have to keep citizens informed and safe during an emergency. You can register your cell phone for emergency notifications by registering at 311 through the following link http://beaumonttexas.wpengine.com/departments/eoc/eoc-notifications/connect-cty-form/
You can also call 311 or 409-980-8311 to register your cell phone but due to a currently increased call volume it is actually quicker to register on- line.
By registering with the city’s Connect-CYT system, you provide us with multiple ways to notify you in the event of an emergency that affects Beaumont. You also will be enrolled in the Southeast Texas Alerting Network (STAN). This information will remain in the custody of the Beaumont Office of Emergency Management at all times, and will only be used for critical information and emergency notification purposes. You may list land line phone numbers, however we are most interested in gathering cell phone numbers and email addresses.
This system, combined with our other emergency alert methods, is designed to get emergency messages to the public quickly and effectively.
Emergency information is also shared through the Beaumont Police and Beaumont Fire Rescue Facebook pages.
