The Riverside Alert system enables you to receive critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as unexpected road closures, missing persons, evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods, as well as community events and other news.
You will receive time-sensitive messages wherever you specify, such as your home, mobile or business phones, email address, text messages and more. You pick where, you pick how.
The purpose of this test is to ensure that the Riverside Alert System is an effective means of warning the public about emergencies, particularly those on the local level. Periodic testing of public alert and warning systems helps to assess the operational readiness of alerting infrastructure and to identify any needed technological and administrative improvements.
