Emergency Notification System
The Emergency Notification System allows the City to rapidly send telephone notifications to all residents and businesses in an affected area in the event of an emergency. An operator using the system can identify the affected neighborhood or region of the city and record a message that describes the situation. The system will automatically call listed and unlisted telephone numbers (including TTY/TDD) within the affected area and deliver the recorded message. If phone lines are busy, the system will attempt to redial those telephone numbers to make contact. If an answering machine picks up the call, the emergency message will be left on the machine.
Just wanted to let everyone know that my home in Oceanside is not part of any of the evacuation zones that have been declared in San Diego County. My apartment is northwest of the intersection of I-5 and HWY 78, so while I'm not that far from the "Advisory Evacuation Area," I am a good distance from the "Mandatory Evacuation Area." I'm actually hosting friends who had to evacuate their home.
