If you are not already signed up to receive alerts and disaster notifications, now is the time to get that done. Make sure all members of your family, business, or organization are signed up for emergency, weather and traffic alerts by text and email from the City.
To sign up, visit www.MalibuCitys.org/News and scroll down to Alert Center (select Emergency, Traffic, Weather, etc.). When there is an imminent threat to any part of our community or evacuations, the City issues Disaster Notifications (similar to reverse 9-1-1) to the specific area that is being threatened. Last year, the City acquired a database of all cell phone numbers with accounts with a 90265 address, so it is not necessary to sign up for Disaster Notifications. However, if you wish to add or remove phone numbers or have multiple contact numbers listed, you can visit the Disaster Notifications sign up portal at www.MalibuCity.org/DisasterNotifications, create a profile, and change your contact information. If the imminent threat is widespread, the City can issue a Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) which goes to all cell phones within the City with no subscriptions necessary, so it reaches visitors and employees as well as residents.
