Unified alerts notification system. The app allows users to directly receive important information, via Apple's Push Notification Service, that has been input by trusted delegates from an area's authorized personnel. Ranging from more common scenarios such as accidents on the highway or school closings to severe incidents like the previous "derecho" storm - Heads Up aims to keep the public safer and more informed with live information from trusted sources.
We do not require any personal information such as email or phone number. We also do not use geolocation or geofencing as to be very cognizant of your battery life.
If Heads Up! Community is not in your area, please let your officials know you'd like for them to use it!

Ratings and Reviews
I find this very useful but am curious as to how to remove the old alerts. I tried using the remove button several times. It will say there are no more alerts but the next day or two, the old alerts are again on my phone
Very useful to keep aware of surroundings
I find this app to be a very useful way for my community leaders to keep residents in the know about weather, road conditions, school issues, and other topics.
I agree this is a useful app, but I’ve found it needs internet connection to work.
I was in our car this evening trying to find out if roads were closed due to flooding from heavy rains. That was not possible without an Internet connection.

Hi JMat, yes, Push notifications and the alert list relay on some form of data connection, either cellular or Wi-Fi. Now, depending on the area you live in, you can also sign up to receive text message notifications. However, you're going to run into the same issue when service is limited. Typically is there isn't enough data for the app to populate, there isn't going to be enough service to get an SMS message.
