Lincoln County Emergency Notification and General Information Notification System
are free services provided in a cooperative effort by Lincoln County Government, Lincolnton City Government and Lincoln County Schools to offer citizens emergency alert notification and general informational messages.
To make sure your receive these important alerts wherever you are, or to enroll your entire family to make sure they receive alerts, you can add up to five telephone numbers and two email addresses to your profile
for each service from the links below. For cell phone numbers, you must specify if you want to receive voice calls or text messages. A physical address (your home location for example) is required because emergency messages may only apply to specific areas of the County; no P.O. Boxes please. Please Note that each service is independent, so additions must be made to both systems separately.
