What does it cost?

There is no cost to sign up. Emergency notification is a free service provided by local public safety agencies. In 2013, the system was funded through a grant from the California Office of Emergency Services. In 2014, the system was funded through a Placer County homeland security grant.

When calls are made to your cell phone, standard call and/or text messaging charges from your service provider may apply.
