AlertSantaRosa keeps residents updated with free, customized emergency notifications

Posted on June 21, 2018 by Staff reports

With the first day of summer comes the potential for seasonal thunderstorms and flooding rains. Get emergency notifications for up to five county addresses in the best format for you through AlertSantaRosa – now with the addition of Blackwater River and Coldwater Creek flooding alerts.
AlertSantaRosa provides Santa Rosa residents with free emergency notifications such as flash floods, severe weather events, hazardous material emergencies, evacuation orders, road closures and more. Subscribers choose the delivery method most convenient for them: text message, email, phone call or smartphone app alert.
“Our goal is to get emergency messages out quickly to as many people as possible, in the notification format of their choice,” said Brad Baker, Santa Rosa County emergency management director. “Using new technology is a priority for emergency communications as people continue to move away from having a landline phone.”
