[ARCHIVED] Onslow County launches ALERT Onslow emergency notification system

ONSLOW COUNTY, NC— To keep Onslow County citizens safe and informed when life or property may be at risk, Onslow County Government has launched a new mass notification system – ALERT Onslow.


ALERT Onslow will rapidly deliver emergency messages to predefined groups or geographic areas.  The ALERT Onslow database includes E-911 data (landline telephones) and data from citizens who self-register for the service.  Onslow County Government, with the guidance of the Onslow County Board of Commissioners, pursued the new system which offers weather alerts, user-friendly registration and website/social media compatibility at a lower cost to the County.  ALERT Onslow will be active 24/7 for releasing messages on incidents such as: missing persons, hazardous materials, wildfires, evacuations or other instances that may pose threats to citizens.  ALERT Onslow also offers the option to receive National Weather Service ‘severe weather warnings’ to a user’s landline or mobile phone.  The system is powered by CodeRED, a web-based reverse dialing program that allows for specific, time-sensitive information to be directed to designated audiences in need.   Users may receive alerts via text message, phone call recording or email.   ALERT Onslow can translate messaging into four languages:  German, French, Japanese and Spanish, with additional language options in development.

ALERT Onslow is free for Onslow County citizens to register.  One may register on our website by visiting this link:  www.onslowcountync.gov/emergencyservices.  Users may also call Onslow County Emergency Services at (910) 347-4270 for signup assistance.
