New BAY Alerts Features

The new BAY Alerts system provides several options that were not offered in the previous version. First, you will be able to maintain your own safety profile within the system. This means that not only will you be able to manage which alerts you would like to receive, but also by which means you receive them. This feature will also allow you to make these changes as often as you would like. If we add new notifications, or you feel you are receiving too many notifications, you can make the changes you see fit whenever you choose to.

Second, you can voluntarily provide information to Emergency Management that will help with planning for and responding to emergency situations. If you choose, you can provide information regarding your household like:

  • Alternate evacuation site availability
  • Are you able to Shelter-in-Place for weather or Hazmat events
  • What types of Emergency Resources are you able to provide
  • Have a 72 hour food/water supply
  • Have a generator or other backup electricity
  • Is it easier for you to communicate in a language other than English
  • Do you have any allergies
  • Neuro/Behavioral/Cognitive issues
  • Sensory Impairments

  • Do not have transportation    
  • Are you a trained responder
  • Breathing problems
  • Catheters and feeding tubes
  • Mobility limitations
  • Powered Medical Devices
  • Livestock
  • Pets

    All of this information is entirely voluntary and completely confidential. If you are not comfortable providing this information, you simply do not fill out all of the information. You will still need to create a profile in the system, and elect which alerts you want to receive. You can do all of this by simply registering with the system here:
