Do you want a little more information on what's going on with the weather, why the warning sirens are sounding (is it the monthly test or for real?), when is the weather spotters class this year, do you want to know when we're hosting another EMA class, etc. etc. etc.
CCEMA is now offering a way to provide advisories with information we believe may be of use to our citizens....and we're offering it FREE of Charge (although your normal cell phone or text messaging charges may apply.)
Simply go to our registration page (by clicking on the yellow "Registration Page" link) create your account, select the types of messages you with to receive (Voice Phone Calls, Emails and Text messages)...and you're done!
Obviously, the text messages will provide the least amount of info and the emails will have more details...and the voice phone calls will for the most part have the info in the emails. You can sign up for one, two or all three versions. And, we'll try to also post the information on our "Advisories" page here on our website...(second button on the left, just below "Home)
The information you provide is strictly used for our system...and there are no other agency, organization or individuals that have access to the data, and we're territorial...WE DON'T SHARE YOUR INFO!
But, because you create the account with your own User Name and Password, you can update it when you change phones, email or text addresses or want to change what you have selected to receive for messages. (You also need to remember your log-in info for the next time you visit)
We tested this system for most of July, and used a version of it for the National High School Finals Rodeo. We won't be providing daily forecasts like we did for the rodeo, but we will be updating you on weather watches and weather warnings.
THIS IS NOT A WARNING SYSTEM. Unfortunately, because your vendor (AT&T, Verizon, Union, etc.) control when they deliver the text messages, emails or whether the phone call goes to voice mail or actually rings through....so for warnings...please listen for the sirens, monitor weather radio and listen to the Emergency Alert System on your local radio stations.
