Are you signed up to receive emergency alerts?

Author: Anonym/Wednesday, February 1, 2017/Categories: News

If you haven’t signed up for Jackson County Citizen Alert, now is the time!  During last year's wildfire season, it was apparent that many citizens were not receiving emergency alerts. Jackson County uses Citizen Alert to notify residents of important public safety information, such as wildfire evacuations, hazardous materials accidents or even a fugitive in your area.  

Landline phone numbers (both published and non-published) are automatically provided to the emergency notification system by the phone company, however many people don’t have a landline phone anymore. Cellular companies do not provide telephone numbers to the system. If you do not have a landline telephone at your home, we do not have your information and therefore, we cannot alert you about potentially dangerous situations. Signing up for Jackson County Citizen Alert enables you to receive timely notification wherever you are.

We suggest that all residents of Jackson County sign up to receive emergency messages from Citizen Alert. “Opting-In to Jackson County Citizen Alert will maximize your ability to receive emergency notifications and accurate up-to-date information in a timely manner for events that may affect your personal safety and property.”

 Jackson County doesn’t share your information with anyone. Your information is only used to send you emergency information, and (if you choose) important community alerts.
