Reverse 9-1-1

Use the information on this page to learn more about one of San Luis Obispo County's alert and notification systems, known as Reverse 911.  Reverse 911 allows emergency officials to notify residents and businesses in a designated area of an emergency and actions they may need to take.  

The Reverse 911 system does require registration of cellphones and Voice-over IP (VoIP) phones before messages will be received. Landlines are included in the system. 

Wireless Emergency Alerts

Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) are emergency alert messages similar to text messages that are sent to WEA-enabled cell phones in the vicinity of an emergency that requires the public to take action. The alerts include a unique sound and vibration but can include no more than 90 characters.   

WEA messages are sent by authorized emergency officials for local emergencies but can also be used by the President in times of national crisis. 

Registration is not required to receive WEA, but those interested in receiving alerts should verify their cell phone settings are set to receive messages.
