Emergency Notification System

Thank you for your interest in signing up for the Emergency Telephone Notification System of the Village of New Athens, Illinois. We are proud to offer this new service to the public.

An Emergency Telephone Notification System, gives those in charge of Public Safety, a chance to reach out to the public in case of an emergency event. This system, combined with our other emergency alert methods, is designed to get emergency messages to you, the public, quickly and effectively. This does not preclude you from calling 911 if you need emergency information; it simply provides an opportunity for us to disseminate critical information to you if and when the need arises. 

The Emergency Notification System, is an automated system that calls homes and businesses in the Village to notify them about serious emergencies. Uses for the Community Alerting System include but are not limited to the following:

  • Weather Emergencies
  • Missing Person Alerts
  • Emergency Evacuations
  • Local Security & Crime Alerts
  • Amber Alerts
  • Hazardous Materials Events


  • While we have strived to provide a current database of landline phone numbers of residents of the Village of New Athens, we cannot guarantee an all-inclusive list.  Therefore we request that you add any additional numbers that we did not call during our test notification.  Feel free to list any additional land line phone numbers; however we are most interested in gathering cell phone numbers and email addresses.


  • If you have an address located within the corporate limits of the Village of New Athens, please provide it in the Street Address field, in the event of a localized emergency your local address will integrate with the notification systems mapping capabilities.

This information will remain in the custody of the Village of New Athens ESDA at all times, and will only be used for Emergency Notification purposes.

The reason for this form is to gather as many means of contact as you may have, so that in the event of an emergency that affects the Village of New Athens, Illinois, we can notify you in multiple ways.

We appreciate you taking the time to share this important information with us!
