Emergency Management

Overview

In an emergency it is absolutely imperative for public safety officials to reach those in the community who are most at risk. During an emergency situation, the local Emergency Alert System may be used to broadcast messages on KKXK (94.1 FM) as well as KUBC (580 AM). Safety officials may also use the Emergency Notification System, a system that attempts to deliver recorded emergency messages to the traditional wired phones in the affected area. However, due to the increasing reliance on mobile phones for communication, individuals who wish to receive emergency voice or text messages on their mobile phone must complete a simple online registration.
