However, in an emergency no single system is foolproof. Keep in mind that automated alerts are an excellent enhancement to our effort to share emergency information with our citizens, but registration will not guarantee notification of any specific event. Therefore, it is important to check multiple sources for information – such as radio, television and the Internet – and use varied methods of delivery for getting information directly – such as voice, text or email.
