Sheriff Brian Burnett is proud to announce the release of a new mobile app, MyAlerts, powered by AlertSense, the county’s new emergency alerting service. Chelan County residents and visitors can now receive life-saving emergency alerts and advance warning of severe weather directly on their Android or Apple iOS phone or tablet. You can download the free MyAlerts app from the Google Play Store or the App Store. Below is a list of the type of alerts you can choose to receive.
Severe Weather Alerts
Receive advanced warning of severe weather when you or one of your locations is in the direct path of a storm. AlertSense automatically interprets the geographic area affected, and delivers targeted alerts immediately to app users when one of their locations falls within the impacted area.
Public Safety Alerts
Receive emergency alerts from public safety alerting authorities, notifying you of situations that threaten the safety of yourself or those that you care about. Public safety alerts include events such as crime, active shooter, imminent danger, hazardous materials, wildfire, floods and the need for immediate evacuation.
You can also choose to receive notifications of events in your community that, while not life-threatening emergencies, still impact your daily life and commute, such as road closures and power outages.
This program is strictly voluntary. These alerts are provided free of charge, however standard text messaging rates and other charges may apply.
