Rave Alert and Smart911 - Register today!

The Village has migrated from the Code Red emergency notification system, to Rave Alert and Smart911. Registration is required for anyone who lives/works in Western Springs, and users can customize the types of messages they’d like to receive. Public Safety officials strongly encourage residents to register for the no-cost service that issues emergency notifications, and provides emergency responders with important information.

Rave Alert allows citizens to receive timely and actionable emergency alerts via email, text, or voice message on their cell phones. Smart911 is a new safety feature that is available in addition to Rave Alert. Smart911 allows individuals to create a Safety Profile, at, at no cost, that includes information they want 9-1-1 and response teams to have in the event of an emergency. When a person makes an emergency call, their Safety Profile is automatically displayed to the 9-1-1 call taker’s screen, saving critical seconds and even minutes in response to the emergency. When coupled with Rave Alert, people can receive notifications on potentially hazardous situations involving weather, traffic, and other emergencies. Users can customize the types of alerts they would like to receive.

If you require a paper copy of the registration forms, or need assistance with online registration, please call Village Hall at 708-246-1800.
