Emergency Notification System

Registering with WarnCentralTexas allows local officials to contact their communities by phone, email and text during times of disasters or public safety events. These notifications can be generated geographically specific.  By registering, you determine the time and method of notifications.

Warning Types

Stay tuned to your local news channels for weather updates or tune in to a NOAA Weather radio. Also, register with WarnCentralTexas.

The Bastrop County Office of Emergency Management will utilize these same warning colors on the Bastrop County OEM Facebook emergency posts.
