The City of Punta Gorda has announced an alert system geared to inform residents about public emergencies.

According to the city’s Facebook post, “Alert Punta Gorda” will allow the city to contact the entire community or target specific areas in an emergency or for urgent situations that require the public’s immediate attention.

Examples include natural disasters, man-made disasters, search and rescue situations, and sexual offender alerts.

Users can choose how they want to receive time-sensitive alerts, either through a home or business phone, mobile phone, email, text message, or more based on their preferred settings.

Note: If a user opts to sign up for lightning alerts, you may receive numerous notifications throughout a storm.
