CivicReady Emergency Notification System

Sign Up for Alerts

Lumpkin County has partnered with CivicReady to provide an automated mass notification system for its citizens.  CivicReady is a communication service that sends immediate alerts to Lumpkin County’s citizens who are subscribed to the system. 

Citizens must add their information to the new database to receive severe weather warning calls.

David Wimpy, the Lumpkin County EMA Director, recommends that everyone opt into the CivicReady Weather Warning system. He also suggests that “all individuals and businesses should take the time to visit our website and add contact information to include cellular phones and other non-traditional phones as well as email and text addresses (for use by the CivicReady system). If your contact information is not in the database you will not receive a call.” In particular, businesses should register, as well as individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number recently and those who use a cellular phone exclusively or have VoIP phones (such as Vonage) as their primary numbers.  Chief Wimpy also asks everyone to share this information with their families, friends, and neighbors. 

Chief Wimpy urges citizens to log onto Lumpkin County’s website at and click the Emergency Notification icon at the bottom of the page.  If you do not have internet access, please contact a friend or family member to help enter your contact information.  Those without internet access may call 706-864-3030 for assistance in registering for this free service.  Required information includes a street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes) for location purposes and a primary phone number. Additional phone numbers, email and text addresses may also be entered. 

More information about the CivicReady Weather Warning system is on the website; any questions should be directed to Lumpkin County Emergency Management at 706-864-9180.
