When will the Alert System be used?
The Safe Communities Alert Network will be used to notify you about emergent, significant and time-sensitive emergency events affecting the Town of Black Diamond. System administrators will send notifications regarding:
• Critical Alerts (immediate life threatening danger)
• Information Bulletins (extraordinary situations to be aware of and prepare for)
• Volunteer Requests (opportunities to assist with disaster relief)

Alert messages can also be sent to you about incidents happening near your home, work, school, or other address locations you choose in your settings.

We’ll send out test messages three (3) times each year to be sure everything is working, and to remind you to keep your contact information up-to-date.
