Swift911 is a computerized telephone calling system that can be used to notify you of an emergency situation such as a severe storm evacuation or a dangerous situation.
Only the Town of Hempstead Department of Public Safety can activate or send an alert.
To be sure you are listed, sign up for Swift911 alerts by visiting the Swift911 Emergency Notification page. You must first register to use the Swift911 Portal by creating a user name (a valid Email address) and password. After your registration verification is confirmed, you may enter your primary telephone number as well as up to three alternate telephone numbers.
Online registration via the Swift911 Portal is required. Please ask a friend or family member to assist you or use our Helpline form for further assistance.
Simply provide your contact information by visiting the Swift911 Emergency Notification page. After you have registered for an account and it has been verified, you may enter your cell phone number and check the "Opt-In" box for TXT/SMS Messages.
You may modify your contact information by visiting the Swift911 Emergency Notification page. At the bottom of the Swift911 Portal, click on the type of notification you wish to unsubscribe from (Phone Calls, Emails, or Text Messages). Enter the information you wish to have removed from the database and confirm by entering it a second time. You will then receive a 4-digit confirmation code via a phone call, email, or text message. To complete the opt-out process, you will be required to enter that confirmation code on the next screen. This confirmation process is required to prevent fraudulent opt-out requests.
