LA COUNTY TEST of EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM ~ Helpful How To Instructions Down Below

The following is the notice from the County Office of Emergency Management concerning the upcoming test of the Emergency Notification System known as ALERT LA, but please note the following: If your home landline phone system is VOiP, you may not be automatically registered, (and it may very well be. Many Frontier customers, MagicJack customers and others are VOiP and you may not be aware you are VOiP). Because of this it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you go to the above link and make sure all your choices for notification are included, in particular your landline and, now available, your email. You may add multiple phones and email addresses. It takes but a few minutes. If possible, after the test, please make note what test message you may or may not have received.....voice....text...email.

TCEP will try to assimilate input from as many people, as best it can, to provide feedback on the system. Thanks.

From the LA Office of Emergency Management:

Topanga Canyon will be the focus of a test of the County’s free mass notification system, Alert LA County, on Tuesday, February 20, 2018.

The newly upgraded Alert LA County system has new options to send messages by phone, text or email. Users can now also choose to receive messages in up to five different languages.

Topanga Canyon was selected as a test community due to its wildfire vulnerability. RESIDENTS ARE ENCORAGED to visit alert.lacounty.gov to create or update their accounts. Alert LA County automatically uses 911 database information for landlines. However, residents must register to receive emergency notifications by text, email, or to their cell phones.

Alert LA County is one way residents and businesses receive safety instructions and information during an emergency. The test will begin at 10:00 a.m., and will last between five to ten minutes.  Topanga residents will receive a message that clearly states it is only a test, and no action is required.

HELPFUL INSTRUCTIONS FOR REGISTERING FOR THE ALERT LA EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM:


The new Alert LA County mass notification system (Code Red) offers many more notification options than the old system. More phone numbers, texts, emails, TDD/TTY and six language preferences. The whole point of this system is to provide redundant alerts to multiple devices so you and everyone in your household have a greater chance of being alerted to an emergency, such as a middle-of-the-night fast moving wind driven wildfire.
There has been some confusion about how your old account information gets transferred to the new system. To be absolutely certain that ALL of your phone numbers are captured correctly in the new AlertLA system (landline, VOIP, cell), and to give you the ability to make changes to your account information at any time, LA County emergency officials strongly recommend that everyone create a new account.
Here’s how:
1. Go to alert.lacounty.gov
2. Select “Register or Log-in here!”
3. Select “YES, I would like to create a managed account”
4. You can create your account by using your Google, Facebook or Twitter log in or you can
manually create an account username and password by filling in the text fields.
5. Select “Continue.”
6. Put in your contact info and communication methods.
7. For cell phone numbers, check the “Send text messages” box and then select your wireless
carrier. For landline and VOIP numbers, do not check the “Send text messages” box.
8. Decide which types of alerts you want to receive. You can always come back and change
these settings later.
9. Select the “+Add phone” button to put in additional phone numbers. Each account can
have up to four phone numbers. If you have more than four numbers, create another
account.
10. Select the “+Add email” button and put in your email addresses. 11. IMPORTANT! Check the box in the Terms and Conditions section. 12. Select the “Verify information” button.
While landline numbers associated with your address are automatically captured from the 911 database and are in the system, it won’t hurt to manually put those numbers in your account if you have the space.
Note that no alert system is 100% accurate 100% of the time. Residents should have multiple ways to get emergency notifications and not rely solely on Alert LA County.
Please make notes on what types of alerts you receive (or don’t receive) when the system is tested for the first time on Tuesday February 20, 2018 around 10:00 a.m. TCEP will post a Survey link on social media channels where you can post your feedback. These responses will help the County work out any bugs in the system.
Thank you Topanga!
