We can’t alert you if we can’t reach you!
The South Central Task Force (SCTF)
and Cumberland County Department of Public Safety (DPS) are encouraging
those who live and/or work in Franklin, Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin,
Perry, York, Lancaster or Lebanon County to register with
the SCTF’s new mass public notification system South Central Alert.
This system will be utilized by emergency managers in the 8 counties
listed above to alert citizens of urgent situations such as evacuation
notices and instructions, shelter in place notifications or boil water
advisories. This system is separate from notification systems that your
local municipality or school district may use and WILL NOT be used to
announce community events (fairs, parades), political messages or
general weather statements.
Notifications are made geographically, so
that we can select the exact area affected by an emergency situation.
All white page and yellow page listings for the 8 county region have
already been entered into South Central Alert, but the system can do
much more. Those registering can add up to 10 notification paths (cell
phone, work phone, email, text messaging) and can register up to 5
locations (work, children’s schools, family member’s homes, etc.).
Registering is easy and can be done so by clicking the South Central Alert logo at the top of the page.
Individuals may also register by contacting Cumberland County DPS via email at e-mail or by phone at 717-218-2913.
