All public safety agencies in Sacramento, Yolo, and Placer counties have partnered to have a state of the art community notification system to alert residents about emergency events and other important public safety information.  

This system enables us to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, unexpected road closures, missing persons and evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods.

You opt-in to enter your contact information and subscribe to notifications that you care about based on your location. The information you provide is protected and will not be used for any other purpose.

How It Works

  • When we issue a notification about a potential safety hazard or concern, you will receive a message on the voice or text communication methods that you have registered.
     

  • If requested for the notification, you can confirm that you have received the message and you will not be contacted by any subsequent methods regarding that particular notification.
     

  • If you do not confirm, the system will continue to attempt to reach you at all of the contact paths that you have registered.
