Frequently Asked Questions: 

What is the Emergency Alert Program?

This service allows you to opt-in to receive notifications via phone calls, text messaging, e-mail and more based on locations you care about. You can choose to receive notifications about events that may affect your home, workplace, family's schools and more.

When will it be used?

This system will be used to notify you about imminent threats to health and safety as well as informational notifications that affect your locations or work environments. Administrators will send notifications regarding severe weather, flooding, gas leaks, police activity and more. Select the "Program Updates" box under alerts to receive information when there are added features.

I own a home/business with a landline phone. Should I sign up?

Changes in home or business may happen faster than updated information received from telecommunications companies. We encourage homes and businesses with landline numbers to sign up. That way, you control the accuracy of the data if/when changes occur.

Will I still get emergency notifications if I don't sign up?

If you don't create a username and password, you will receive notifications only if you have a published landline phone and are in the geographical area where a notification is sent.

I have multiple people in the residence with their own cell phone/email. Should they all create an account?

We encourage all members of a single household to sign up. Families are not together all the time and by everyone signing up, everyone can be notified.

Can I sign up for a disabled or elderly family member/what if my family member doesn’t have a cell phone and/or internet access?

You can create an account listing your family member’s phone as the first line of notification, and yours as the second. This way you know if you are notified, your family member may not have been. This will prompt you to check in with them to make sure they are safe.

What if my phone number or email address changes?

The system is only as good as the information you provide. If your contact information changes, you can always visit your profile and update your information.

I forgot my username/password.

There are links on the login screen to reset, or retrieve usernames and passwords. Yamhill County Alerts does not have access to your login profile information. By following the links, you will be instructed on the steps to take to reset or retrieve usernames or passwords.

Will my contact information be shared with others?

No. The information that you provide will be used only for this Organization for notification purposes. We will not give or sell your contact or location information to any vendor or other organization.
