Stay Safe! Get Your Alerts On Citizen App
Citizen is announcing new features to help citizens stay safe in the face of severe weather. Citizen’s new “Severe Weather Alerts” feature will notify users of any impending storms or hazardous conditions, helping them get home before it’s too late. Citizen has partnered with National Weather Service (NWS) to bring you this life-saving technology.
Electronic push notification technology allows meteorologists to send alerts to protect people’s lives across the country. Citizen App has partnered with all of the National Weather Service (NWS) offices across the nation to bring you this life-saving technology. Alerts will show up automatically on your 8-day forecast page, giving you enough time to plan for any impending storms.
NWS has issued more than 30,000 severe weather alerts since January 2014. If you were to receive each alert as a push notification, it would be overwhelming but not for Citizen. Citizen app users will now only see the most severe weather alerts associated with their current location. And if you don’t want to be bothered during the workday, you’ll also have the option to silence alerts from 7am-7pm.
Citizen App only sends you severe weather alerts when your location is affected by dangerous weather or other hazards. You can rest easy knowing that Citizen’s priority is saving lives and we will never send promotional messages. Citizen also works with the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) alerts. For National Weather Service watches and warnings, Citizen app will notify you of any severe weather threats within 10 minutes of the issuance of these advisories. For NOAA alerts such as tropical cyclones and other significant marine and water events, Citizen will send you those alerts as soon as the National Weather Service sends them out.
Citizen app is available on iOS and Android platforms for free download. iOS users can also sign up to receive severe weather alerts through email by going to your device’s setting menu under “Notifications”.
