Emergency Alert Service
Garden City and Chatham County provides a free e-subscription service that enables the public to subscribe to emergency alerts via email or text.
This e-subscription service will be used to provide emergency information. Garden City will only utilize the "Emergency Alerts" Topic of our e-subscription service during an emergency or disaster, particularly in an evacuation or during the recovery from an event which has caused significant damage. The City encourages residents to sign-up for the e-subscription service and link it to their cell phone so that the messages will be received in a timely manner (standard text messaging rates will apply).
