Stay Informed. Be Buncombe Ready. Sign up for BC Alerts

Updated: Buncombe County now uses CodeRED for mobile alerts.

Buncombe County will be using our emergency notification system to let people know when COVID vaccine appointments are available. 


If there’s one thing the pandemic has taught us, it’s to be ready… Buncombe Ready. But what’s the best way to stay up to date about available vaccines, natural disasters, public health emergencies, and more? Sign up for BC Alerts, and you’ll get that information sent directly to you in real time.

Text BCAlert  to 99411 or click here to sign up and pick the types of alerts you’d like to receive. You’ll also be able to choose from preferred languages. Need TTY? No problem, that option is also available.  

If you’ve already signed up for BC Alerts in the past, you’ll need to re-register due to a change in emergency alert providers.
