Mass alert system now offered in St. Charles County

St. Charles County has launched the SCCMO AlertMe, a mass notification system that delivers alerts by text, email or phone call. Subscribers can register to receive notifications in one or all the following categories:

• Emergency Management Alerts from the St. Charles County Division of Emergency Management cover natural disasters, including flood evacuations and related major/emergency road closures; public safety emergencies; and other county-wide safety concerns. The National Weather Service provides alerts for thunderstorms and tornadoes; therefore, those notifications are not available through SCCMO AlertMe.

• Health Alerts from the St. Charles County Department of Public Health encompass mass outbreak/pandemic information, including illnesses and food poisoning, as well as county-wide animal control concerns.

• Police Alerts from the St. Charles County Police Department include missing persons, manhunt information and county-wide safety concerns.

• Road Construction and Closure Alerts from the St. Charles County Highway Department cover road construction and related road closures by the department.

While registration for SCCMO AlertMe is free, cellular message and data rates may apply depending on the resident’s provider and plan.

For more information or to register, visit sccmo.org/AlertMe.
