AlertOC Test on Thursday, September 22nd

AlertOC Test on Thursday, September 22nd

September marks National Preparedness Month and the Tustin Police Department is urging residents and businesses to prepare for the many hazards that could threaten our daily lives and sense of normalcy.

AlertOC, the County’s mass notification system, is a critical link for residents to immediately learn of any required actions during a critical incident.

On Thursday, September 22nd more than two million Orange County residents will receive a call to test AlertOC. The drill will replicate a large scale, multi-jurisdictional emergency requiring thousands of numbers to be called simultaneously across Orange County’s entire region. This is the seventh annual regional test of the system and will include participating cities as well as the County’s unincorporated areas.

The distinctive feature of AlertOC is the ability for individuals to register multiple contact methods and addresses. Registrations of cell phone and alternate numbers dramatically increase the ability to reach the greatest number of community members within minutes. This enables landlines, cell phones and e-mail addresses to be incorporated into a single notification system.

Residents can do their part to prepare for emergencies by registering for AlertOC. The time is now to self-register cell phone numbers and e-mail addresses to be a part of the regional test. For more information or to register alternate phone numbers or e-mail addresses, visit www.AlertOC.com.
