No, this is what the email alerts, APIs and webhooks are for.  There is SNMP support but only for queries.

Actually, you can send SNMP traps from a Meraki solution - but it has to be enabled by Support:   https://documentation.meraki.com/zGeneral_Administration/Monitoring_and_Reporting/SNMP_Overview_and_...

Note that the traps come from the Meraki Dashboard, not the devices themselves hence the Receiving server IP must be a public IP  (think: security - SNMPv3..?)

Given this, @cmr 's recommendation to look at other alerting mechanisms still bears consideration.

Actually, thinking about it a bit more, I'm not sure the other proactive alerting mechanisms are any more secure (certainly not compared to properly implemented SNMPv3)
