Madera County Emergency Warning System
Madera County is now issuing critical warnings to citizens county-wide. Should there ever be a threat to your health or safety, you can receive notifications by registering online.
Registration of Phone Numbers
The MCAlert Emergency Warning System database already houses landline phone numbers. If you want to be reached by other means such as cellular phone, text message, work phone, email, fax, or smart phone app, you MUST register that information. All information you provide will be kept strictly confidential and will only be used for emergency notifications.
Use of the System
MCAlert is used to deliver alerts when there is a threat to the health or safety of Madera County residents.
How it Works
The process begins when MCAlert sends out a message about a potential safety hazard or concern. Messages may be sent to all standard voice and text communication devices, including landline phone numbers, cellular phone numbers, faxes, and email. If you do not confirm receipt of the message, the system will continue trying to contact you until it receives a confirmation from you.
There is no cost to register. MCAlert is a free service provided by the Madera County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services in cooperation with the Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians and participating cities.
Cellular phone companies may apply a service charge to your bill if you receive alerts by way of cellular calls and/or text messaging. Madera County is not responsible for any charges that may be incurred as a result of receiving these alerts on your cell phone.
