New Emergency Alert System

Get time-sensitive alerts with Mt. Lebanon’s new customized emergency notification system. LeboEmergency, powered by CodeRED, lets you pick how you receive alerts about life-threatening situations, such as active shooters, gas leaks, evacuations, missing persons, chemical leaks and potentially deadly weather.

You can continue to receive less urgent notifications, such as meeting cancellations, trash pickup delays and road closings, through your LeboALERT subscription.

Sign up for LeboEmergency by texting LEBO to 99411, or by clicking here. Both methods will lead you to a registration page where you can select the kind of alert you’d like to get (text, email, phone call or TTY) and where you’d like to get it (landline, cellphone and email addresses). If you need help using a computer, you may call the fire department during business hours at 412-343-3402 and someone will help you with the registration.

Once signed up, you’ll be ready to get LeboEmergency notices. Mt. Lebanon emergency management staff can send alerts to the entire database or customize them to reach only the addresses near the danger.

LeboEmergency is not limited to Mt. Lebanon residents. For example, if you live elsewhere but have a child enrolled in nursery school here or if you have an elderly parent in a care facility or even if you own a business in Mt. Lebanon, LeboEmergency will let you know if there’s a problem and what actions you should take.

After you sign up for LeboEmergency, it’s a good time to tune up your LeboALERT account. LeboALERT will still be used for all kinds of non-emergency notifications. This software will continue to tell you things like special event schedules, street closures and municipal service changes. You can go into your account at any time and change your preference for which notices you want. To access your account, go to and click on the myLeboALERT box in the middle of the homepage.

Both notification systems are free, but messaging rates may apply depending on your phone carrier and plan.
