We have a variety of groups you can join to get notifications about emergencies, advisories, community events, and newsletters.

The City of Kirksville can send you alerts via text message, email, pager, or voicemail (in extreme cases), based on your preferences.

The system includes emergency and non-emergency alerts that cover a variety of topics. You control what alerts you receive.

Emergency alerts could include specific hazards that require action to be taken. Non-emergency alerts include Parks and Recreation events, meeting notices, street closures, news releases and several other items.

Please provide your address and preferred method(s) of contact. Adding your address will allow tailoring so you do not receive alerts that don’t pertain to your geographical area.

These alerts are provided free of charge, however standard text messaging rates and other charges may apply.
