What type of notifications will Newell Notify send me?

Emergency Notifications - These are mandatory emergency notifications. When you register, you will be automatically signed up to receive these mandatory alerts. In a crisis, we’ll use your contact information to reach you with important information about what’s happening and any steps you need to take to protect yourself or your family. For example, we might warn you of a wild fire in your area, give you details on evacuation, and let you know when it’s safe to return home. We’ll use all your phone numbers, e-mail addresses, or text message numbers one-by-one until we reach you.
Non-Emergency Notifications - These are informative non-emergency notifications that you can choose to subscribe to. These can be items such as Road Closures, Community and Cultural Events, and Fire Bans.
