When emergencies and disasters strike, public safety agencies use different types of alerts to send emergency information to your cell phone, landline, radio or television. Below are a list of other alerts that may be of service to you. 

Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA)

Phone Screen

(WEA) are a national service that sends a vibration, loud tone and short message through your phone if an emergency is nearby. You must have a cell phone that is WEA enabled to receive alerts. You don’t need to sign up and there is no charge to you. You can check the settings in your phone to make sure the alerts are activated. Learn More

California Independent System Operator (CAISO)

A Flex Alert is a call for consumers to voluntarily conserve electricity when there is a predicted shortage of energy supply, especially if the grid operator needs to dip into reserves to cover demand. When consumers reduce electricity use at critical times, it can prevent more dire emergency measures, including possible power outages. Learn More
