Warren County Rolls Out Alert System
Warren County Sheriff Daniel T. McEathron announces the implementation of the Delta-Alert mass notification system that will allow emergency alerts to be sent to land-line telephones, cell phones, email addresses and in TTY/TDD formats. The Delta-Alert system was purchased with the aid of a Virginia Department of Emergency Management grant and can be used to alert residents about natural and man-made disasters, accidents, evacuations, and fires as well as send alerts for missing children, adults and senior citizens.
Residents that have had a land-line phone in their residences since October 2011 are currently in the system and they will automatically receive notifications.
Citizens wishing for emergency notifications to be sent to their cell phones or email addresses must register their personal contact information.Â We urge all Front Royal / Warren County residents wishing to receive emergency cell phone and email alert messages to sign up for emergency alerts today by visiting the Warren County Sheriffâ€™s Office website, www.warrencountysheriff.org
These alert systems are just one tool that you can use to keep you and your loved ones safe.Â It is our hope to offer safer solutions for notifications to our citizens.Â We hope that Front Royal/Warren County residents will participate in making sure their emergency contact information is in the Delta-Alert system and is accurate.Â
