[ARCHIVED] Community Encouraged to Sign-Up for New Emergency Notification System

Bedford Alert graphic

The City of Bedford recently switched to a new, enhanced emergency notification system that will help residents stay informed of a variety of events affecting Bedford. Residents have the option to sign-up for community alerts and weather alerts. Community alerts include, but are not limited to, water outages, street closures, power outages, and other public safety notifications that affect a significant number of residences.

Residents with landlines will be automatically subscribed to alerts through their home phone. To register, please visit or text 817-661-4321 and choose the preferred communication methods and language (English or Spanish) for alerts. Users can sign-up using their preferred contact methods such as cell phone, text/SMS, home phone, email, or TTY/TDD for the hearing-impaired. Residents may also receive emergency alerts via their Alexa-enabled smart speakers by saying, “Alexa, enable Hyper-Reach” and following the instructions provided by Alexa.

Please note, anyone who previously signed-up for these types of alerts through the former notification systems used by the City, known as Blackboard Connect, will need to re-register as the data was not transferred to ensure proper functionality of the new system.

Residents may also download the Hyper-Reach Anywhere app on their smartphone. Hyper-Reach Anywhere is a free app that allows users to manage and monitor the alerts they receive. The Hyper-Reach Anywhere app is available for iPhone and Android users.
