County implements emergency system
Los Angeles County officials today announced the implementation of an emergency mass notification system to alert residents and businesses by phone, text, and e-mail of emergencies in their area.
Called Alert L.A. County, the system will allow the Sheriff's Emergency Communications Center to activate local and regional alerts by drawing the boundaries of the area to be notified on a computer map. Recorded and written alerts will provide information on the nature of the emergency and necessary actions, such as evacuations.
If a call is picked up by an answering machine , a recorded message will be left. If the number is busy or does not answer, the number will be redialed twice.
