Jackson County Launches County-Wide Evacuation Alert Keyword

Jackson County Launches County-Wide Evacuation Alert Keyword

Jackson County Emergency Management launched a layer to the existing Everbridge mass notification system that allows individuals to receive all Citizen Alert Level 1, 2 and 3 evacuation alerts issued in Jackson County by Emergency Management and City jurisdictions.

“We are very excited to add this to our mix of alerts. This new keyword adds an option for those who prefer to be notified of any evacuation notification in Jackson County. Residents are still encouraged to sign up through Citizen Alert first to receive emergency information specific to their address. These additional alerts will also help to lower the use of critical emergency touchpoints like our 911 system,” shares Jackson County Emergency Manager Holly Powers.

Individuals may sign up for this additional notification by:  

  • Text JACKSONEVACS to 888777
  • Once opted in, individuals will receive any messages for all level 1, 2 and 3 evacuation notification sent by Jackson County Emergency Management and Cities.
  • A Citizen Alert account is not needed to receive messages sent through the keyword.
  • A Citizen Alert account is needed to receive emergency alerts that are specific to your personal address(es).
