NOLA Community Alert System

NOLAReady is a service provided by the City of New Orleans Office Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness. “NOLAReady is an alert system that allows City Officials to contact you during an emergency by sending text messages to your:
* E-mail account (work, home, school, etc.)
* Cell phone, pager
* Smart phone or hand held device”

Alerts can be viewed at their webpage and you can select alerts by zipcode.

Caveats: They seem to ask for a lot of personal data and under universities neither LSUHSC or Tulane Med are listed which is odd.

    I think the University may have blocked the site. I used to get messages on both my home and work e-mail accounts. One day I received a message saying that the e-mail was no longer allowing the messages.
