San Joaquin County Emergency Officials Keep Citizens Safe and Informed with SJReady Alerts

Sign Up to Receive Critical Communications and Emergency Alerts

San Joaquin County officials have collaborated with Everbridge to implement a free community notification system, SJReadyAlert, to notify residents about emergency events and other important public safety information. San Joaquin County Emergency Officials will begin using SJReady Alerts to communicate with citizens and businesses during emergencies and other critical events. Residents are encouraged to register immediately to receive these alerts at SJReady.org.

Countywide, officials will use the SJReady Alert emergency notification system to notify residents about various events, ranging from severe weather, fires, floods, and other emergencies. The system can also allow for more routine announcements, such as road closures and water utility maintenance. Messages will be sent to residents via their preferred contact paths—cell phone, SMS, home phone, email, and more—to ensure real-time access to potentially lifesaving information. Residents listed in the San Joaquin County 911 database (typically landline phones and VOIP/Digital Telephone Services) will automatically be subscribed to alerts by phone. Still, Everbridge allows citizens to self-register to provide additional contact information, such as email or cell phone numbers, or to opt-out.

The SJReady Alert system allows users to establish preferred notification means, such as cell phone, email, text message, or TTY/TTD device. Users can identify multiple addresses for notifications, such as home, work, or a loved one’s home. In addition, they can specify which city or cities and types of messages they wish to receive.

The SJReady Alert system supplements, rather than replaces, other communication methods used by emergency responders, both in person and with other media. Television, radio, and county/city websites will continue to broadcast important announcements as well. The SJReady Alert communications are dependent upon external providers such as a wireless carrier or email delivery service.
