How do I Sign Up for Emergency Alerts
Simpson County ALERT is a free service that allows you to sign up and receive notifications about emergencies that may affect the locations you care about. This service allows emergency response agencies to send out accurate and up-to-date information about incidents that may have a significant impact to residents. These emergency alerts could be related to specific hazards that require action be taken such as evacuation, shelter in place, boil water, etc. In addition to receiving information on your wireless device, you may also sign up to receive notification on a traditional landline phone. Adding your address will provide you with geographically targeted alerts when an emergency impacts your specific location.
All listed landline phone numbers have already been programmed into the system, but since many people no longer have a home phone or primarily use their mobile devices, SCOEM encourages citizens to register their cell phone with Simpson County ALERT. The system can make thousands of calls in a minute to convey vital information.Click here to Sign Up Now
