Snow Emergency Phone Alerts

Minneapolis uses the Swiftreach Emergency Notification System to alert residents to snow emergencies and other important information.

When a Snow Emergency is declared, you may receive a short, prerecorded voice message. If you have a listed phone number in Minneapolis, you are most likely already on our list.

Update Your Phone Information

Note: We cannot guarantee that you will receive a telephone call, so it's important that people continue to check the City's website or call 348-SNOW whenever snow falls and you think a Snow Emergency is likely.

You must follow Snow Emergency parking rules, even if you don’t receive a Snow Emergency Phone Alert.

For more information, visit Snow Emergency Phone Alert FAQs.
