Alert LCF is the City’s mass emergency notification system which has been in effect since 2014. The reverse 911 system has the capability of sending voice, text, and teletype (TTY) messages to residents during emergencies using a combination of telephone database and Geographic Information System (GIS) technology. Alert LCF is used to deliver emergency alerts to residents when there is a threat to the health and safety of residents in the City and provides critical information such as evacuation orders and shelter locations.
