In the event of an emergency, it is critically important for you to be prepared and informed. Oakland County‘s emergency notification system, OakAlert, empowers residents to be aware of extreme incidents throughout the county, such as:
Chemical spills impacting public health
Outdoor warning siren activation (will not include other weather watches, warnings, or advisories)
Active assailant situations causing an evacuation or shelter-in-place orders
Significant road closures such as a highway closure, not lane closures or daily traffic incidents
Closure or interruption in service of county operations
Additional notifications affecting the health and safety of the county
It takes just 90 seconds to sign up and could be the difference in how you face the next emergency.
