County and Cities partner to launch Alert Solano emergency notification system
June 1, 2018
SOLANO COUNTY – The County of Solano, in partnership with the seven cities, are encouraging everyone who lives, works, plays or travels through Solano County to register for the new Alert Solano emergency notification system.
"Here in Solano County, your safety is our top concern," says Don Ryan, Solano County's Emergency Services Manager. “Alert Solano allows us to send important messages to you through the convenience of your email, cell phone and text messaging, giving us the ability to let you know about incidents and emergencies that may affect you – as they happen.”
In the event of an emergency, public safety officials, including the Solano County Sheriff’s Office, local police and fire, send out a message about a potential safety hazard or concern, including severe weather alerts, road closures and natural disasters directly to those who have registered for Alert Solano.
The Alert Solano emergency notification system allows users to provide customized information to allow the most efficient delivery of emergency information. Users are encouraged to register multiple devices, including cell phones, smart phones and tablets. Alerts can be sent to all devices listed in the Alert Solano account, maximizing the chances of alerting users in a timely manner.
“The success of Alert Solano relies on you,” Ryan says. “Having your latest contact information is the best way public safety officials can reach you directly in an emergency.”
Everyone is encouraged to register for Alert Solano through the self-registration portal at www.AlertSolano.com. Participants can register up to five addresses. It is recommended that every person in a household sign up for an account. Once registered, users can update their information online at any time through the Alert Solano portal.
The cities of Benicia, Dixon, Fairfield, Rio Vista, Suisun City, Vacaville and Vallejo, including the unincorporated areas of Solano County, are all participating in the Alert Solano emergency notification system. Solano County respects the privacy of all Alert Solano registrants and will keep all user information confidential. It will never be sold or released for commercial purposes.
