Sign Up for Emergency Alerts Today


DON'T WAIT UNTIL DISASTER STRIKES TO SIGN UP FOR EMERGENCY ALERTS. DO IT TODAY.

When an emergency or disaster hits, getting life-saving information is important.

One of the easiest and fastest ways to get information during an emergency is on your cell phone.

Information such as alerts, notifications and directions of what you need to do, or where to go can be disseminated right to your phone.

Emergency officials can identify specific areas that affected by the emergency/disaster and can prepare and send messages pertinent to the emergency.

But you need to have your cell phone registered to receive the alerts.  Don’t wait for an emergency to register, do it today!!

Registering your phone is simple. Click on the following link  http://portalv4.swiftreach.com/portal.aspx?c=202228 and follow the directions to register your phone.

Make sure your family registers their phones as well.

This is just another way for you to receive valuable and potentially life-saving information during an emergency, so sign up today.

Remember, if we can’t reach you, we can’t alert you.

  • If you are instructed to EVACUATE your home, will you know what to do? Do you know where you will go? How will family members be notified of where to go? Are you prepared to take your pets with you?

    Planning ahead is vital to ensuring you and your family can evacuate quickly and safely. Create a plan today to be prepared tomorrow. 

    BEFORE AN EVACUATION

    Learn what types of disasters are likely in your community and make an evacuation plan that includes information for every family member as you may not always be together when disaster strikes. 

    Include in in your plan how you will leave and where you will go. Include in the plan how you might receive an emergency alert or warning, what your evacuation route will be, where you plan to shelter and how your family will communicate with each other during the disaster.

     v  In developing your evacuation plan, consider the makeup of your household and the needs and responsibilities of each member of the family, including pets. Among the factors to consider are the ages of household members, dietary needs, medical needs, disabilities or access and functional needs, languages spoken, pets and service animals and cultural and religious considerations.

     v  Identify several locations you and your family can go in an emergency, such as a friend’s house, a motel or pre-identified community shelter locations. Make sure to include locations in different directions from your home so you have options during an emergency.

     v  If you have pets, make sure to identify places that will allow them to stay there.

    v  Be familiar with alternative routes and other means of transportation out of your neighborhood. Be prepared that your only way out of your neighborhood may be on foot depending on the type of disaster.

     v  Make sure to create a family communication and reunification plan so you can contact family members should you be separated.

    v  Make a “go-bag” you can carry should you need to evacuate by foot or on public transportation.  Also have supplies available should you have to evacuate in your own vehicle and for a longer distance.

    v  If evacuation seems likely, make sure your vehicle has a full tank of gas. Plan to take only one vehicle when you evacuate to avoid congestion on the roads.

    v  Keep a portable emergency kit in your vehicle with the following items: jumper cables, flares or reflective triangle, ice scraper, car cell phone charger, blanket, map, cat litter or sand for traction.

    v  If you do not have a vehicle, plan how you will leave if needed. Arrange with family members or neighbors for possible transportation.

    v  If you have a pet, make sure to create a pet evacuation plan. Designate a neighbor to check on your pet should you not be home. Identify shelters that may take pets and alternative sites should a shelter not accept animals.
