The City of Rocklin, in partnership with emergency response agencies throughout Placer, Sacramento, and Yolo counties, has implemented a state-of-the-art emergency mass notification system. It provides critical information, delivered quickly. 

In the event of law enforcement activity, fire, unexpected road closures, missing persons, evacuations, or other emergencies, citizens can sign up to be notified on their cell phones, work phones, or home phones. The citizen simply logs on to www.Placer-Alert.org to enter up to five addresses; i.e., children’s schools, a home address, a business address, etc. 

If there is pertinent activity in the vicinity of those addresses, the citizen will be notified. All personal information is kept strictly confidential. An emergency call will display with the calling number as 999-999-9999. 

The new emergency notification system by Everbridge was made possible through a grant from the Department of Homeland Security and the California Office of Emergency Services.
