Sign up for Emergency Alerts


Alert LA County is a free mass notification system for Los Angeles County residents and businesses.  The Sheriff’s Department uses Alert LA County to contact you if there is an emergency or disaster in your community.  The system sends shelter-in-place instructions, evacuation, and other emergency messages. It has accessibility features for people with disabilities and others with access and functional needs. You can also select your preferred language for notifications.

Click on the registration link above to add cell phones, VOIP phones, emails, and additional addresses where you would like to receive alerts.  The Alert LA County database automatically includes listed and unlisted land line telephone numbers, so they do not need to be registered.

Alert LA County is only one of many emergency mass notification communication tools available to residents and businesses in Los Angeles County.  Cities, special districts, employers, schools and universities may have their own notification systems.  Make sure you research which other systems are available in your community and sign up so that you are informed when there is a local emergency.
