Additional Information


Approximately 25% of households today rely on cell phones as their only communications resource. Our local government utilizes several methods of communication to warn us (radio, television, etc); however, specific warning messages are geographically distributed to landlines and registered cell phones. Emergency messages cannot be distributed to cell phones without voluntary registration of those devices. Registration of your cell phone is used solely for emergency notification purposes and will not be sold or distributed.
