Emergency Notification System

Lcog Emergency LogoWelcome to the Community Emergency Notification System “Alert Me” Lane County, Oregon area information and registration site. Public Safety Agencies in Lane County are expanding the capabilities of their Community Emergency Notification System (CENS) so that public officials can reach more members of the community with timely alert and warning information. With CENS and the “Alert Me” registration, critical information can be relayed to you about emergency situations that require your immediate attention.

Until recently, emergency personnel would use CENS to call land-line telephones but did not have the capability to include Wireless (cellular) or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone numbers. Now, owners of VoIP or cellular phone lines can receive the same emergency message as those with land-line phones receive, but ONLY IF THEY REGISTER.

Can Your House Be Found Quickly In An Emergency?

Addresses, visible from the roadway are very important for emergency services to help find you in case of a fire or medical emergency.  The use of contrasting numbers at least three inches in height should be used to help us fund your home quickly in case of an emergency. 

In the rural area, the district installs address marker posts at the entrance of the property.  If you don’t have one contact the district office and we can install a marker for you.  If you live inside the city limits of Lowell, the District may be able to help by providing address numbers for your home. 

Help us help you, install numbers on your home.  Contact the district office at 541-937-3393 for more information.
