MyAlerts Mobile App New to Douglas County

Douglas County is pleased to announce the release of a new mobile app, MyAlerts, powered by AlertSense, the county’s new emergency alerting service.   Our residents and visitors can now receive life-saving emergency alerts and advanced warning of severe weather directly on their Android or Apple iOS phone or tablet.  You can download the free MyAlerts app today from Google Play or the App Store.

You can also sign up to receive alerts and notifications.

Types 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 the storm.  AlertSense receives feeds from the National Weather Service, automatically interprets the geographic area affected, and delivers targeted alerts immediately to app users when one of their locations falls within the impact area.   You can tailor your alert settings by location, selecting the severity level for which you want to receive notifications.  For example, you can choose to receive only the most severe weather warnings or all watches and advisories as well.

Public Safety Alerts
Receive emergency alerts from public safety alerting authorities, notifying you of situations that threaten the safety of yourself or those 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.

Community Notifications
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.

My Locations:

Simply add all the locations that matter to you, both within the county and even in other parts of the country.   For example, you could identify your home, your child’s school, where your aging parent resides, the university where your older child attends, and your office.   When you travel, you can enable the app to “monitor my current location” in order to receive any emergency alerts issued for the city or area you are visiting.
