Lower Providence Township will begin using Montgomery County’s free emergency notification system, ReadyMontco, to send emergency alerts via text, email and phone starting in February. If you would like to receive Township emergency alerts, you must sign up for the new system – even if you’ve received Township alerts in the past.
ReadyMontco is your official source for notifications about emergencies in Lower Providence and severe weather, crime alerts and disasters across Montgomery County.
To sign up, go to www.ReadyMontco.org and click on the Sign Up tab at the top of the page. If you need assistance, consider reaching out to a family member or neighbor. You will need to provide an email address to register. You’ll be prompted to enter basic contact information and how you would like to be contacted. If you have a smart phone, you can download the Everbridge Mobile Member from the App Store on your iPhone or Android. Sign up is free, but your wireless carrier may charge you a fee to receive text messages on your cell phone or wireless device. Contact your carrier for information.
If you have questions, call the Township Emergency Management Coordinator Charles DeFrangesco at 610-635-3546. The following times have been set aside for in-person sign up assistance at the Township Building: 8 am-2pm on Saturday, Feb. 3 and 9 - 10 am, Tuesdays and Thursdays in February.

The registration process also contains a My Information tab. If you, a family member or someone you live with has an Access or Functional Need and will need assistance during an emergency, this page is especially important and is strictly confidential. The information is used for planning for a large-scale emergency or disaster in your area.
You’re also encouraged to register with Smart911.com to provide information that will help first responders in the event of a 911 call at your home. If a 911 call is received from your phone number, the information will be displayed for the call taker. The information is stored on a private and secure national database and only accessible when a 911 call triggers it.
