to Report an Emergency

Charlottesville-UVA-Albemarle Emergency Communications Center has updated their mass notification system with a new tool to reach community members in an emergency. Citizens can now register with the Community Emergency Alert system to receive recorded phone messages, text messages or e-mail messages in case of emergency. The system is also TTY/TDD compatible.


Safety of our people is the highest priority. Knowing what to do in an emergency is critical to your safety:

  • If you discover an emergency situation, call 911. Remain calm and use common sense.
  • Depending on the situation, evacuate or shelter-in-place.

During An Earthquake:

  • When you first feel shaking, immediately take cover under something sturdy: under your desk or in the hallway; Cover your head.
  • Do not attempt to walk during the quake; you may be thrown to the ground.

In the event of an emergency, multiple communication methods will be deployed to reach as many people as possible.
