Get text or email alerts for urgent local news stories

Want to know the minute something big happens in Arlington? We recently added a new option for getting alerted.

ARLnow now offers two ways to get alerts right on your phone or computer: text message alerts for urgent and breaking stories, and email alerts for major breaking stories.

The text alerts are an exclusive feature for ARLnow Press Club members.

Each time we publish a story that’s marked “JUST IN,” “EXCLUSIVE,” “TRAFFIC ALERT,” “DEVELOPING” or “BREAKING,” you’ll get the headline and link texted to you within seconds.

Want to be the first to know? Join the Press Club.

Already a member? Sign up for text alerts now.

If you only want to know when the really big stuff happens, that’s an option, too: subscribers of our free Afternoon Update newsletter automatically get email alerts for major stories.
