How do I receive emergency alerts?

Our primary way to deliver emergency information to the public is via Emergency Alert System (EAS) messages which are pushed to radio stations and television stations. Other options would include:

- Wireless Emergency Alerts to cell phones

- The Community Emergency Notification System (CENS), which is a recorded message sent to landlines and recorded/text message to registered cell phones/VoIP phones

- Website alerts on

- Social Media posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Nextdoor (via Emergency Alerts)

- Our Ready Maricopa cell phone app, in which we can send out alerts.

- We are also equipped with HAM radios in our EOC.
