Effective 2/1/2017, the City of West University Place has a new emergency alert system called Swift911. This services replaces the earlier CodeRed system. Following the 2016 active shooter situation, the city received numerous complaints from residents who failed to receive timely warnings. The solution to this problem is the transition to Swift911.
We highly recommend that all West U residents subscribe to the emergency notification system. You can personalize your account to receive phone, email and/or text messages.
Subscription information for Swift911 is available on the city's website. Current CodeRed users will need to subscribe to the new system.
