Anyone who lives, works or visits Mt. Lebanon, or who has a vested interest here, such as a child in daycare or a parent in one of our continuing care facilities, can sign up for our emergency and non-emergency alerts.


LeboALERTS are non-emergency alerts that keep you on top of everything from safety bulletins to anticipated traffic tie-ups, community event announcements and weather cancellations. You chose the categories and edit them whenever you want. Register for them on myLebo.

LeboEmergency, powered by CodeRED

Sign up to get time-sensitive messages about life-threatening emergencies on the go—on your cellphone in a text, in a phone call and email—with LeboEmergency, powered by CodeRED.

The customized notification system lets you pick how you want to be notified. (If you have a landline, that number is likely already in our system. But you must opt-in to get texts, cell calls and emails.)

These are serious, dangerous situations, like active shooter emergencies, evacuations, missing persons, chemical leaks, etc.

Here are some step-by-step instructions.

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.

You also can sign up directly from your cellphone by texting LEBO to 99411. You’ll get a signup link that’s easy to follow.

Once signed up, you’ll be ready to get LeboEmergency notices. Mt. Lebanon emergency management staff can send alerts to the whole database or customize them and send them only to addresses that are physically near the danger. Only a small number of authorized emergency personnel are able to send alerts; your information is safe, it will never be sold and you will not receive any advertising or spam.

You do not have to be a resident. 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.

You may also choose to download the CodeRED app, which uses mobile technology to message your smartphone about dangers within a certain distance of your location (Yes, you can choose how far the distance is.) However, here’s a warning: American Water Co. uses this system to alert customers of water line breaks. These notices are frequent and often not in our immediate area. So decide for yourself if the app is the best choice for you.

THE APP IS TOTALLY OPTIONAL. Even if you don’t choose the app, adding your information to the database will ensure you are notified of important instructions during an emergency.

How can YOU alert us?

Mt. Lebanon does not have a 311 system. If you call that, you’ll get the City of Pittsburgh. If you need a person to respond due to any type of safety concern in Mt. Lebanon, whether it’s public works, medics, police or fire, always call 911.

You can report potholes, needed repairs, dark streetlights or other noncritical concerns at mylebo.mtlebanon.org.

LeboEmergency, powered by CodeRED is an alert system that will send news and instructions during life-threatening emergencies to everyone in our database. When you enroll, you can add your cellphone number to the database and select to receive text messages, phone calls and emails on the go. You also can add landlines to receive phone calls and TTY messages. Your phone number that you registered with your water bill is automatically in the database, so even if you do not sign up, we will be able to reach you at that number in a life-threatening emergency, to give you instructions that may save you or your family.
The program is strictly for life-threatening emergencies, such as active shooter situations, gas leaks, evacuations, chemical leaks, natural disasters, fragile missing persons, etc. If you wish to receive non-emergency alerts about such things are road closures, cancellations due to inclement weather and crime alerts, subscribe to LeboALERT.
No. The software allows emergency management staff to send messages to all subscribers or to just the people who are close to the danger. That way, you are not bothered by situations that would not likely affect you.
When you sign up, you will be asked for your home address. Targeted notices will be sent to your contact preferences if you life in an affected area. You also can choose to download the CodeRED app, and you will receive emergency alerts if you are physically located near the incident, as long as you have location services enabled on your phone.
It is free to enroll, however, refer to your cellphone plan to see if your plan charges for text messages.
Nothing. We will never sell or give away any of your information and you will never receive spam or advertisements of any kind.
All LeboEmergency notifications will include a follow-up message to let you know the situation has concluded.
No. We think it will also be helpful for people who work in Mt. Lebanon or own businesses or property here. If you have family in a senior care facility or children in preschool or daycare here, you may also want access to these alerts.
