These alerts not intended to replace any primary alert system, such as traditional pagers, that may be used to notify your department for emergency services.

Alerts sent via SMS may not be delivered if your phone is not in range of a transmission site, or if sufficient network capacity is not available at a particular time; furthermore, within a coverage area, factors beyond the control of the user’s wireless carrier may interfere with message delivery, including equipment, terrain, proximity to buildings, foliage, and weather.

By agreeing to the terms of service, you acknowledge that urgent alerts may not be timely received and that your wireless carrier does not guarantee that alerts will be delivered.
