Linn-Benton ALERT is an emergency notification system that calls or messages residents to warn of impending or occurring emergencies and provides critical safety instructions when they are needed most. The system is address-based. It will send alerts to landline telephones (or the device of your choosing) in the zip code or neighborhood of areas affected by the emergency. If you receive a call, you will hear a computer-generated message, but please do not hang up. Instead, listen to the message in its entirety for important information.
By signing up for Linn-Benton ALERT, you can choose to have alerts sent to your cell phone, other phones or TTY devices, or receive text messages or emails. When you sign up, please make sure the address you input is accurate. The system maps to your physical address (no PO Boxes) so please carefully enter your complete street address and correct zip code.
Once you sign up, you can manage your profile, make changes to your contact choices to ensure the system has your most up-to-date information, and edit your alert preferences.
