New emergency notification system launched

From page A3 | August 06, 2014 |

The Yolo County Office of Emergency Services — in partnership with emergency response agencies throughout Yolo, Sacramento and Placer counties — has implemented a state-of-the-art mass notification system to alert residents about emergency events and other important community news.
The system enables officials in the three counties to provide essential information quickly, through a variety of avenues, when there is a threat to the health and safety of residents.
The emergency notification system database includes all listed and unlisted landline telephone numbers in Yolo, Placer and Sacramento counties serviced by AT&T and Verizon.

To ensure that residents receive emergency notices in a timely manner, both at work and home, they are encouraged to log on to the system and provide other contact options such as home phone numbers not serviced by AT&T or Verizon, cellular and work phone numbers, and email, TTY device and instant messaging information.

All information will be kept strictly confidential.

Contact information for work and home in all three counties can be added to the database through any of the following URLs: Yolo-Alert.org, Placer-Alert.orgSacramento-Alert.org and YoloCounty.org. The link is at the bottom of the home page.

Alerts and notifications that residents might receive through this system include time-sensitive messages about flooding, levee failures, severe weather, disaster events, unexpected road closures, missing persons and evacuations of buildings and neighborhoods in specific geographic locations.

This system by Everbridge was made possible through a grant from the California Office of Emergency Services and is supported by the California Department of Water Resources, Flood Operations Center.
