In the event of a public safety situation, law enforcement and fire agencies issue evacuation warnings or evacuation orders for impacted areas. These notices are issued with a Zone ID and Zone status. To know more about evacuation zones and emergency preparedness, visit beprepared.zonehaven.com.
There are a number of different alert systems in place to receive real-time alerts and updates about incidents and emergencies.
1) Nixle Alerts – text 888-777 to opt in.
2) SoCo Alert – notification by phone call, text, and email.

Evacuation notices sent through SoCoAlert will use specific terminology to alert registered residents to an emergency, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with that terminology (Nixle uses similar terminology).
