How Will You Stay Informed About Emergencies?
Your safety is our top concern – that’s why Del Norte Office of Emergency Services wants to make sure you know about emergencies and incidents as they happen.
The Del Norte Community Alert System powered by Everbridge to make sure you know about issues that may affect your safety. This system allows Emergency Services to contact thousands of residents in seconds so you can find out about an emergency right away.

How Does It Work?
The process begins when local emergency services issues a message about a potential safety hazard or concern. Next, emergency services will send a message through your primary contact path. If you don't confirm receipt of the message, the system will try to reach your second contact path and continues trying to reach you until you confirm receipt.
The success of this service relies on YOU. Having your latest contact information is the only way to ensure that we can contact you in an emergency. It only takes about a minute to enroll!
