Emergency Notification System

Changes to Emergency Notification System Coming September 1, 2023

The City of Hopkins is changing how we alert citizens for snow emergencies, road closures and other public safety matters in the community.

In the past, alerts have been sent out via phone calls to numbers associated within the City of Hopkins. On September 1, 2023, this old system will be removed and replaced with Smart911.

Sign-Up for Smart911

To continue (or begin) receiving emergency alerts, you have two options:

  1. Create a free Smart911 profile at www.smart911.com/smart911/ref/reg.action?pa=hopkinsmn. Once signed up, you can update your contact preferences (email, phone call, text) and opt in/out of the types of notifications you wish to receive.
  2. Text HOPKINS to 78015 to opt-in to text/SMS-only alerts. This option is not configurable like the Smart911 profile is. You will receive all alerts via text message only. Opt-out at any time. Standard messaging rates may apply.
