There are many emergency mass notification communication tools available to residents and businesses in Los Angeles County.  For example, the Emergency Alert System broadcasts emergency information directly to radio and television carriers for widespread emergency events.

You may have already seen these messages, which are voice messages with text scrolling on the television screen. Wireless Emergency Alerts go directly to your cellphone, and can be used to send out urgent alerts targeting certain geographic areas.

In partnership with the National Weather Service, Non-Weather Emergency Messages are used to expand alerts in hazard areas, especially in areas with poor cellphone coverage. Weather Radios that use S.A.M.E. technology can be programmed for use in Los Angeles County and a limited number of pre-programmed radios have been distributed.

Quick Tip: Research your Local Emergency Communication Systems.

Cities, special districts, employers, schools and universities may each have their own emergency notification systems.  Make sure you research which systems are available where you live and work, and sign up so that you are informed when there is a local emergency.
