Effective September 1, 2013, Pacific County transitioned to a new emergency notification system. The new system has the ability to contact you regarding via home phone, cellular phone, text message, email, and/or TDD. This system may be used by emergency response personnel to notify specific homes and businesses at risk with information about a disaster or emergency event. You will only be called when the associated address will be impacted by the event. If you registered your cellular or VoIP phone number prior to September 1, 2013, you are encouraged to re-register and landline users are encouraged to update their information. The new system can be personalized based on your needs and the type of notifications you wish to receive.
