Advisories and Notices

Alert Tampa

We want to communicate with all our patrons and notify you about any closures, registration periods, and exciting new programs we are offering. This is one of the many ways we use Alert Tampa, as well as emergency alerts regarding weather and other local emergencies you can choose to register for. Sign up on the City of Tampa Alert Tampa Page.

If you have an address outside of the City of Tampa; your address will need to be modified to a location within the City of Tampa to ensure you continue to receive alerts. If you would like to receive geographical information for a specific area within the City of Tampa we highly recommend that you update your profile. This address needs to be within the City of Tampa service area to receive emergency notifications. For example a specific pool, recreation center, or other location.
