About this app

With the My Alerts app from AlertSense, you can receive life-saving emergency alerts from public safety agencies, advanced warning of severe weather and community notifications that impact you and your family.

My Locations:
Simply add the locations that matter to you. For example, you could identify your home, your child’s school, where your aging parent resides, the university where your older child attends, and your office. When you travel, you can enable the app to monitor your current location in order to receive any emergency alerts issued for the city or area you are visiting.

Types of Alerts I Can Choose to Receive:

Severe Weather Alerts
Receive advanced warning of severe weather when you or one of your locations is in the direct path of the storm. AlertSense receives feeds from the National Weather Service, automatically interprets the geographic area affected, and delivers targeted alerts immediately to app users when one of their locations falls within the impact area. You can tailor your alert settings by location, selecting the severity level for which you want to receive notifications. For example, you can choose to receive only the most severe weather warnings or all watches and advisories as well.

Public Safety Alerts
Receive emergency alerts from public safety alerting authorities, notifying you of situations that threaten the safety of yourself or those you care about. Public safety alerts include events such as crime, active shooter, imminent danger, hazardous materials, wildfire, floods and the need for immediate evacuation.

Community Notifications
You can also choose to receive notifications of events in your community that, while not life-threatening emergencies, still impact your daily life and commute, such as road closures and power outages.

Please Note: If a location you enter is not currently covered by a public safety agency who utilizes the AlertSense Service, you will receive severe weather warnings but not public safety alerts or community notifications for that location. If your city or county does not currently utilize the AlertSense service, contact your local public safety organization and let them know that your community would benefit from this service.

GIMMICKY! USELESS unless you allow the app to monitor your location. Secondary locations won't alert you but you must read the alert on a list. Not optimized for landscape which makes it useless for tablets. Why can't you put that in the description? No wonder you've got such low ratings. You're short sighted and have no idea how to develop for a multi-platformed market.

If you have multiple areas covered by the same alert, you'll likely receive duplicate warnings. It's also quite a battery hog if you enable "Monitor Current Location." So close to being good, but there are better apps out there.

Like others have said, it doesn't show any alerts. I have several nearby locations saved that I know are under evacuation orders and nothing even shows up on the map. Seems like a dangerous app if people don't have backup alerts from other sources set up.
