Regional Emergency Alert Network (REAN) is a FREE emergency notification tool for ALL citizens of Bexar County. This system uses the Bexar Metro 911 landline database for emergency notifications. The cell phone and email information that you provide, gives emergency responders more options for reaching residents and businesses in the Bexar County area.
Individuals can sign up to get alerts on a mobile phone, landline, by text message, or by email. Residents also can sign up for multiple accounts, to be aware of emergencies that may affect various locations, such as a residence, workplace, or child’s school.
