News Release
Yamhill County Emergency Management to Conduct Test of Alert System (Photo) - 04/24/18

On Friday, May 4th, 2018, at 10:00 am, Yamhill County Emergency Management will conduct a county-wide test of Yamhill County Alerts.  Yamhill County Alerts is an emergency notification system used to notify residents in the event of life threatening emergencies, or localized notifications, such as boil water orders or major utility disruptions.  Calls, emails, and text messages will go out to all residential landline phones and opt-in profiles.  To avoid potential impacts to businesses, business phones will be excluded from the test.

Calls and messages will clearly state this is a test and will be followed up with some general information on what to expect if this were an actual emergency.

Yamhill County Alerts contains non-restricted landline data for residences and businesses within Yamhill County, but residents are encouraged to sign up for the free service.  By signing up residents control the method of notification, whether text, email, or phone call, and they have control over the contact information.

To sign up go to Yamhill County Emergency Management’s home page and follow the link, or search “Yamhill County Alerts” in your favorite search engine.  http://www.co.yamhill.or.us/emergency-management
