Alerts & Warning Systems
REGISTER TO RECEIVE EVACUATION NOTICES AND FIRE INFORMATION
During wildfires, Lake County residents should be prepared to monitor multiple sources for fire and life safety information. Emergency managers will use several methods to distribute fire information: Nixle, LakeCoAlerts, Social Media, local TV and radio. Don’t forget to use your own senses and stay vigilant of changing conditions.
During a wildfire, “Nixle” is used to provide INFORMATION by text message targeting ENTIRE ZIP CODES when new INFORMATION becomes available.
To sign up for Nixle alerts, scan the QR code with your smartphone or click on the button below.
LakeCoAlerts is a notification system offered by the Lake County Sheriff for local mass emergencies, including wildfires. We highly recommend signing up for both Nixle and LakeCoAlerts to help make sure you are getting all notifications.
Social media outlets such as Facebook can be excellent sources of public information and may be used by local agencies during emergencies. Be sure to follow your local fire department, Lake County Sheriff’s Office (@lakesheriff), Cal Fire’s Sonoma Napa Lake Unit (@CalFireLNU), and your local police department to monitor fire information and receive updates during local wildfires.
