Pre-register for Fairfax Alerts During Celebrate Fairfax

Posted at 10 a.m.

Fairfax Alerts — Fairfax County’s new emergency alert system — won’t go live until later this month. However, if you’re planning to be at Celebrate Fairfax this weekend (June 6-8), you’ll have the opportunity to pre-register and be one of the first in the county on the new system.

In the video below, Whitney Kazragis, outreach liaison with our emergency management office, explains.

Get more information on Fairfax Alerts at — and stay tuned for details to be announced later this month when the system goes live and how you can sign up to receive alerts.

      We agree that emergency alerts are a great service, which is why we are enhancing our capability with Fairfax Alerts. For instance, you will be able to customize your alerts on which device you want, download the new inter-active mobile application and receive auto weather alerts that are geo-targeted to your specific address. Thanks for supporting emergency alerts and being a part of CEAN — and we encourage you to sign-up for the new Fairfax Alerts on June 19 at
