With all of the disasters and emergencies that have occurred over the last year, we wanted to make sure that you were aware of the Emergency Alert system from the Sacramento County Office of Emergency Services.
The Sacramento County Office of Emergency Services, in partnership with Yolo and Placer emergency agencies, announce the launching of a state-of-the-art emergency alert system known as Sacramento Alert. The system provides information to residents about emergency events quickly and through a variety of communication methods.
The alert system currently includes all listed and unlisted landline telephone numbers in Yolo, Placer and Sacramento counties that are serviced by AT&T and Verizon.
To ensure emergency notices are received quickly both at work and home, residents are encouraged to log onto the Sacramento Alert Self- Registration Portal below and provide phone numbers for both home and work, including land and cell phone numbers, email addresses, TTY device information and instant messaging information. To register, go to www.sacramento-alert.org.

Residents will only receive alerts that are critical and time-sensitive, including flooding, levee failures, severe weather, disaster events, unexpected road closures, missing persons, and evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods in specific geographic locations.
