Chicago's Office of Emergency Management and Communications wants to give residents a heads up when there is a potential disruption to their daily lives.

The agency is airing a public service announcement as it launches "Notify Chicago." It's a free alert that you can receive on your phone, computer, or voicemail.

Notify Chicago will provide information such things as street closures, severe weather and health warnings.
