Early Warning Notification System (Swift911)
The City of La Quinta is transitioning from CodeRed to a new provider for its emergency notifications. The new system is in collaboration with the County of Riverside and is called “Early Warning Notification System” or “EWNS.” This new system provides improved methods for communicating to the community during emergencies and disasters.
All residents are encouraged to register with the new system to ensure all of your information is up to date. In addition to landlines EWNS incorporates communications technologies such as cellular phones, email and Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP).
Though landline phone information is automatically entered into the EWNS system, registering will ensure that your cellular telephones (also used for text alerts), email and other communication methods are available for emergency notifications, such as evacuations, life safety information and important advisories.
