WarnCentralTexas.org serves as a public portal for residents to register for our Regional Notification System (RNS) and learn about other ways their local communities distribute information in times of emergencies. WarnCentralTexas.org also is being developed as a regional preparedness resource so residents in the ten-county CAPCOG region can find useful information about how they can prepare themselves for emergencies and disasters.

The Capital Area Council of Governments and its partners are pleased to offer an emergency notification system to residents of Central Texas. Registering at WarnCentralTexas.org allows local officials to contact their communities by phone, email and text during times of disasters or public safety events.
Messages sent through the RNS are generated by the local jurisdictions participating in this program. CAPCOG does not send messages to residents.
