Residents Urged to Register Cell Phones for Reverse 9-1-1

Residents of San Diego County are encouraged to register their cell phones and e-mail addresses for emergency notifications by visiting www.alertsandiego.org within the next few days, county officials

Residents of San Diego County are encouraged to register their cell phones and e-mail addresses for emergency notifications by visiting www.alertsandiego.org within the next few days, county officials said
today.

Possible moderate to strong Santa Ana winds are forecast for next
weekend, officials said.

Once e-mail addresses and cell phone numbers are registered, it will
take up to 24 hours for that information to be incorporated into AlertSanDiego, San Diego County's mass notification system, commonly referred to as Reverse 911.

AlertSanDiego will provide emergency alerts to cell phones and e-mail
addresses including evacuation notices, officials said. This is in addition to
land line calls received by those who have land line phones, according to
county officials.

If a city has registered a cell phone number, that information is
automatically shared with the county cell phone registry, according to
officials.
