The City of Dublin's Emergency Alert System is designed to notify residents in the event of any emergency taking place in the City of Dublin, or in nearby communities. The system will provide the following:
A news flash will be sent, alerting residents about a state of emergency, and what actions should be taken. To receive notifications, simply sign up to receive e-mailsthrough the Alert Center.
An Emergency Alert icon will be shown throughout the website during an emergency situation
Flashing RED or Solid Red Emergency Alert Light
When the "Emergency Alert" light is flashing red, or is a solid red, an emergency condition/road closure exists in the City.
GREEN Emergency Alert Light
When the "Emergency Alert" light is green, the state of emergency has passed.
The City of Dublin has also partnered with Alameda County on a new emergency notification system, "AC Alert," powered by EverBridge. This is an ultra high-speed telephonic communication service for emergency notifications. This system allows us to telephone some or all targeted areas of the City in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action (such as a boil water notice, missing child, or evacuation notices).
The system is capable of dialing thousands of phone numbers per hour. It then delivers our recorded message to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number. Examples of times when the AC Alert system could be utilized include:
Drinking water contamination occurrences
Evacuation notices and routes
Fires or floods
Other emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification is essential for protection of life
