“This new emergency alert system is easy to use—from a dedicated app to the ability to add multiple addresses to bilingual resources—this system is designed to deliver fast, accurate public safety alerts for our community. This system can be used to provide notifications during wildfire evacuations, domestic water boil orders, major road closures, missing persons, and more. It’s a key tool for emergency communications.”
