New Pima County Emergency Alert notification system

“If we can’t reach you, we can’t alert you!
During an emergency, urgent messaging is effective only if it reaches you quickly. Pima County’s mass notification system can quickly and reliably push emergency messages to many of the electronic devices you use everyday.

or log in below to edit your preferences.”


This website is a collection of news alerts, preparedness information, and partner links that may be helpful in case of an emergency.”

Carolyn’s note: I just signed up and will wait to see what alerts I receive from Pima County Emergency Management. You can be notified via phone, email, etc.

Back in Hawaii, we await notifications of tsunami alerts from earthquakes, as well as hurricane warnings. Should be a lot calmer here in the SW desert.
