Wake Upgrades Emergency System for Residents
Wake County Emergency Management urges residents to sign up to receive alerts from its new and improved emergency notification system, ReadyWake Alerts. The system provides residents, businesses and visitors with important information in the event of an emergency.
People can sign up to receive alerts for a variety of situations occurring in their area, including severe weather impacts, unexpected road closures or evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods. Residents can choose to receive alerts by phone, text or email.
"Wake County is committed to ensuring all residents receive accurate and timely information in an emergency," said Josh Creighton, Wake County Fire Services Assistant Director. "Our new system allows us to directly contact people who are affected by an emergency in a way that is convenient for them."
Sign up for ReadyWake Alerts at www.readywake.com, or go to any Wake County Public Library and ask for assistance.
ReadyWake Alerts is Wake County's new emergency notification system; anyone who was signed up for the county's old system must re-register at readywake.com to continue receiving alerts.
