Public Safety Announcement:
On behalf of the City of Port Arthur Office of Emergency Management, we will conduct a test of the emergency alerting system on Wednesday, July 22, 2020. The system is vital to keep you informed in the event of any emergency situation such as a hurricane, natural or man-made incident causing a significant disruption to your daily activities. This test will include phone calls, emails and text messages. We highly encourage people who live or work in the Southeast Texas region to register their cell phones by visiting www.thestan.com (STAN – Southeast Texas Alerting Network) or by calling 1-844-578-STAN (1-844-578-7826). Signing up for this emergency alerting notification system will allow the City of Port Arthur to send notifications to registered phone number(s) in the event of an emergency or any other disruption that would interfere with daily routine.
