Public Notifications

How We Notify the Public

The City of Paris uses several methods of providing information regarding emergencies to our residents. These services are also used for non-emergency notifications and general information sharing.

Television Break-In on Local Cable


Suddenlink Communications, being a good community corporate neighbor, allows the City to use what is termed a "cable override" system. This system is used through Suddenlink equipment. When activated, regardless of what cable channel your television is on, the screen will turn red and a live message will be delivered over the audio speakers of the television set. Warnings, Amber Alerts, Silver Alerts, and local alerts are used on this system.
