Emergency Community Notification Sign-UpClark County has implemented an emergency community warning system that is able to send emergency messages via telephone, cellular phone, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and email to residents and businesses within the county. This system may be used by emergency response personnel to notify specific homes and businesses at risk with specific information about the emergency event. You will only be called when the associated address will be impacted by an emergency.
If you have a cell phone or VOiP phone, YOU MUST REGISTER YOUR PHONE with the system to receive alerts. Click here for more info.
Emergency Alert SystemThe Emergency Alert System is characterized by several distinctive tones that interrupt regular television or radio broadcasts in order to deliver an emergency message. If you see or hear an EAS warning, pay close attention to the information and take notes to help you remember what you are being asked to do for your own safety.
NOAA Weather RadioThe NOAA Weather Radio is a valuable piece of equipment that can warn your household of an impending emergency, whether it is a weather related emergency or another kind of crisis that has resulted in an Emergency Alert System activation. The best kind of NOAA Weather Radio is one that has a backup power system, one that carries the Public Alert logo, and one that has a "S.A.M.E." feature - "Specific Area Message Encoding" - programming capability. This allows you to select the specific area that you want to monitor for emergency notifications.
For Clark County, program your weather radio for #053011. For other areas, click here for more info.
