Emergency notifications available via cell phone, e-mail
Last updated 11/2/2007 at Noon
Residents who live in San Diego County, which includes all 18 cities and the unincorporated areas of the county, are encouraged to register their cell phones and e-mail addresses for emergency notifications by visiting http://www.alertsandiego.org. Possible moderate to strong Santa Ana winds are forecast for next weekend.
Once e-mail addresses and cell phone numbers are registered, it will take up to 24 hours for that information to be updated into AlertSanDiego, the County of San Diego mass notification system that is commonly referred to as “Reverse 9-1-1.”
AlertSanDiego will provide emergency alerts to cell phone and e-mail addresses. This is in addition to the landline calls received by those who have landline phones.
Residents without computers may access this Web site from one of the county libraries. There is no charge to use the computers at county libraries.
Please note that while the County Mass Notification System is considered effective and efficient, you should not wait or rely exclusively on a call for evacuation directives. If you think you are in danger, you should evacuate immediately. If you are directed to evacuate by emergency personnel, you should follow their direction.
