AlertOC is a mass notification system designed to keep Newport Beach residents and businesses informed during emergencies. By registering with AlertOC, time-sensitive voice messages from the City of Newport Beach may be sent to your home, cell or business phone. Text messages may also be sent to cell phones, e-mails and hearing-impaired receiving devices. By submitting your contact information, you will be kept informed of local, wide-spread or regional emergencies affecting your community.  

Every landline telephone in the City is already enrolled in the system.
