AlertOC Test Scheduled for 10am This Morning

AlertOC will be conducting a test of their emergency notification system this morning at 10:00 am.

The call from AlertOC is expected to go out to 2 million OC residents. Ths is the fourth annual test of the system.

The reverse-911 system aims to notify residents of emergencies such as wild-fires or floods, and notifications may be targeted by neighborhood. Today's test will approximate a large-scale regional emergency.

These alerts automatically go to landline phones in our city and throughout the county. You can also register your email address and cell phone number to stay in the loop. By doing this, you can be notified even if you are not home - for example, during evacuations.
