Register with Alert OC
Alert OC is a mass notification system designed to notify Orange County residents and businesses of pertinent information related to emergency incidents. By registering with Alert OC, time-sensitive voice messages from the County or the City of Cypress may be sent to your home, cell phone or business phone. Text messages may also be sent to cell phones, e-mail accounts and hearing impaired receiving devices. Mass notification systems have been attributed with saving lives during the 2007 Southern California wildfires by quickly notifying residents at all hours with evacuation instructions. This system is just one more tool to be used by public safety agencies to get the word out to the community when time matters. This system is voluntary and you may opt out at any time.
