TorranceAlerts is our mass emergency notification system that enables you to receive early warning notifications concerning emergency events such as an earthquake, fire, public health emergency or similar situation. A TorranceAlert will be sent when the City is informing you of a “call to action”, such as evacuate, avoid, shelter, etc. to your telephone, email, and/or text.
