Welcome 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.
