Signing Up for Alertable Emergency Notifications
What to do when you receive an alert
Stop. Take a look or listen to your device.
Pause. There is no need to panic, even if you are being put on an Evacuation Order. It is important to remain calm so you can understand the instructions.
Read. Please read the entire notification. Often the area notified by the Alertable system will be larger than the actual alert area. There may be links to more specific maps and information as part of the Alertable notification. You may need to click the down arrow to see all of the text included with the notification. Calling the RDNO before you have read the entire notification ties up emergency program resources at what can be a very critical time.
Remember, you are in charge of your settings, so please take the time to ensure you have Alertable set up the way that suits you best.
