During a real emergency, information about the impact of the emergency, the response actions taken by the City and important post emergency information will be posted here.
Contra Costa County continuously improves its ability to notify all residents and businesses of any possible emergency. The Community Warning System (CWS) allows the Office of the Sheriff to alert the Contra Costa County residents and businesses about incidents that pose an imminent threat to human life or health. The CWS uses sirens, radio and TV broadcasts, targeted telephone call-outs, and alerts to cellular telephones.
Everyone who lives or works in Contra Costa County is invited to register their cell phone number and the ZIP code areas for which they'd like to receive these alerts. Simply go to http://cws.cccounty.us and enter your cell phone number and zip code selections. Then check to accept the Terms of Service and click "Submit." To change or cancel a cell phone registration, simply submit new selections using the same form.
You can get more information by emailing email@example.com or by calling the CWS office at (925) 313-9622. Please help us spread the word about this important improvement in public warning capability for Contra Costa County.
