Storms Prompt Cities to Activate AlertOC, Community Members Encouraged to Register

(Santa Ana, CA)— As the second in a series of storms brings severe weather today, local cities including Seal Beach and Westminster are keeping the community informed by activating Orange County’s regional emergency notification system, AlertOC.

Using AlertOC capabilities, the County of Orange and 31 participating OC cities are able to geographically target messages to neighborhoods directly impacted by storm conditions. Those living and working in the area are encouraged to click here and register to receive these important communications.

After signing up for this free, personalized service, residents and businesses may be sent a phone, text, and e-mail message should specific actions become necessary. The issuance of a “shelter in place” message for severely flooded neighborhoods or an “evacuation order” for potential debris flow locations are just a few examples of when AlertOC might be used.
