Registering with Warn Central Texas allows emergency personnel in your local community to directly contact you by phone, text or email during a disaster or public safety event, including such weather emergencies as tornados, floods or severe thunderstorms.

Emergency response teams will send warnings about dangerous conditions and situations as events unfold. They can quickly give specific directions that affect your neighborhood such as evacuation orders and directions to shelters.

The Capital Area Council of Governments has partnered for this emergency warning service with communities in much of the Bluebonnet service area including Bastrop, Travis, Hays, Caldwell, Lee, Williams, Fayette and Blanco counties.
