Emergency Preparedness

Register Now for Emergency Text Messaging

In the event of an emergency, the City of Holladay will send text messages to pre-registered cell phones to communicate quickly with residents. Register now by texting "follow cityofholladay" to 40404. Please check with your cell phone provider as to the cost of text messages. The service is subject to the availability of cell phones and the Twitter service.

Registering for Reverse 911

In the event of an emergency, the Salt Lake Valley Emergency Communications Center (VECC) has the capability to use Reverse 911 to contact residents. Reverse 911 is used to call out and deliver messages to telephones in specific areas. If you see “0000000000” on your Caller ID, answer the phone because it could be fire, police or the City calling with emergency information.

VECC requests that residents register their cell phones and Voice over IP phones (VOIP phones, such as Comcast Voice or Vonage) with their system to improve this critical service.

You can do so by going online to and clicking on VOIP Registration. The click on "New User" to create an account with the system and register your phones. This service is quick, free and secure. You will be asked to create a login and password in order to protect your information. This will make sure you don’t miss future emergency notifications
