Emergency Alert System Kicks In With Storms
AlertOC allows the county and 31 participating cities to geographically target emergency messages to neighborhoods directly impacted by storm conditions. The issuance of a "shelter in place" message for severely flooded neighborhoods or an "evacuation order" for potential debris flow locations are examples of how AlertOC may be used.
With the weatherman claiming the worst is yet to come, those who live and work in Orange County are encouraged to register at www.AlertOC.com to receive the important communications. After signing up for the free service, you can receive the messages by phone, text and/or e-mail.
