YCSO ANNOUNCES NEW EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM
As promised, we have retired the CodeRed alert system and have something new that we are calling alertYAVAPAI. This system will function much in the same way you are used to – sign up and receive alerts on multiple platforms – phone, email and text.
Yavapai County residents are encouraged to sign up for alertYAVAPAI, which is the Emergency Mass Notification System that enhances our ability to quickly communicate with the public and provide critical and time-sensitive information for emergencies such as wildfires, evacuations, floods and missing persons. By registering for alertYAVAPAI, you can receive alerts via cell phone by voice or text, email addresses, home phone, business phone, and more.
How Does It Work?
It will work in the same way CodeRed worked, by sending you alerts during an emergency or other need to know events. We will continue to use the Ready, Set, Go alerts in reference to evacuations. The system is easy to use, and the instructions for confirming messages will be included in the notification. If we do not reach you on the first attempt, the system may try
another phone number or alternate method of communication, such as text messaging or email.

Starting November 3, 2022 you may also sign up through the YCSOaz.gov website. • Text Alerts: You can opt in to receive text alerts. Just text alertYAVAPAI (all one word) to 888-777. You will then get a response that welcomes you to alertYAVAPAI, and then you will be asked to reply with your zip code to get area-based alerts. • EverBridge App: You can also download the Everbridge App (the orange picture in this post is the App picture) and then search for Yavapai County or Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office where you can sign up on the webpage and choose to receive notifications through the app.
