Emergency Notifications and Time-Sensitive Updates
Tip of the Week for the Week of January 29, 2024
Be informed about emergencies and important community alerts by signing up for Lincoln Alerts. This program is an emergency notification system coordinated by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, through the State of Oregon’s OR-Alert system. These alert messages can be sent from Public Safety, City, Tribal, and County Officials. Users can also subscribe to automated alerts sent by the system (not managed by local agencies) by adding subscriptions such as automated weather alerts, air quality advisories, flooding alerts, and more.
Have you thought about how your family, friends, or employees will be informed during a local emergency? Take the time today to create or update your Lincoln Alerts profile to ensure you get local notifications.
Lincoln Alerts sends time-sensitive messages. Topics may include:
- Severe weather
- Distant tsunamis
- Evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods due to emergency events
- Resources available during and after a disaster
Lincoln Alerts subscribers can choose the ways they would like to receive these alerts. In addition to common notifications such as call or email, users can receive text messages or mobile app notifications. Sometimes alerts are sent only to the affected areas, so depending on the addresses you have listed in your account, you may or may not receive some messages. Regardless of your subscription, you can view Lincoln Alert messages by visiting the Member Portal: member.everbridge.net/892807736721689/notif
It is recommended that each household member create their own account with their personal contact information so they get alerts during an emergency. Emergencies and disasters can happen anytime and anywhere. Keeping yourself and your loved ones connected to emergency alerts is one step you can take to keep you safer and better prepared.
