AlertOC Mass Notification Test

On September 24 at 9 a.m., Newport Beach and more than two million other Orange County residents will receive a call to test the AlertOC system. The test will replicate a large scale, multi-jurisdictional emergency requiring thousands of numbers to be called simultaneously across the Orange County region. This is the tenth annual regional test of the system and will include 21 participating cities as well as the County’s unincorporated areas.

All regular landline phones are automatically entered into the AlertOC system. If you have pre-registered additional phone numbers and/or your email, the system will be sending a test message to those contacts as well. Residents can do their part to prepare for emergencies by registering for AlertOC. The time is now to self-register cell phone numbers and email addresses to be included in future notifications.

For more information or to register alternate phone numbers or email addresses, visit AlertOC.com or call (949) 644-3620.
