Deschutes County Public Information Officer, Sergeant William Bailey, recently posted to Nextdoor.com, encouraging residents to sign up for emergency alerts from the County.
In the event of an emergency, Deschutes County officials can identify an affected area and send a message that describes the situation and recommend protective actions. The system automatically calls all land-line and opt-in telephone numbers within an affected geographic area.
Example events that may trigger a DAS alert include: Emergency Evacuations (Fire, Flooding, Public Welfare, etc.) Natural Disasters (Fire, Flooding, etc.), Missing or Endangered Children or Elderly, Hazardous Material Incidents, and Neighborhood Emergencies.
