Wireless Emergency Alerts
“These alerts will be sent to any enabled mobile device in range of the broadcasting cell tower, so it helps us reach those who need to avoid or evacuate a specific area in the county or to shelter-in-place to maintain their safety,”said Emergency Management Director Greg Swanson. The alerts will be sent when emergency events—such as an earthquake, immediate evacuation, fire, or hazardous materials leak or spill—pose a threat to life.
To insure that you receive these lifesaving alerts, make sure the emergency alerts feature is enabled and activated on your mobile device. Click here for more information about wireless emergency alerts.
