STAN Can Contact You
Local emergency management uses STAN to send two types of messages to the public:
- Emergency messages: In the case of an event that warrants public action, local emergency management can send emergency messages describing what actions need to be taken in response to the emergency.
- Outreach messages: Additionally, emergency management uses STAN to send local notifications, or outreach messages, to the community, such as water outages, street closures or traffic notices.
STAN Can Call You At Home But It’s Important To Register Your Cell Phone Too
In the event of an emergency, STAN will call residential and commercial telephones in the affected areas. Since you’re not always at home, you can register to make sure you receive notifications no matter where you are. That way, if you’re at work and something happens near your home, you’ll know about it. Register here to sign up for cell phone notifications via voice or text, or to sign up for email notifications. You can also sign up to receive outreach messages.
