Emergencies can be natural disasters, like a flood or wildfire, or they can be human-caused, such as electrical power outages, civil unrest, drinking water contamination, or cyber attacks. Ready.gov has resources for you and your family to prepare for such emergencies.
Ready, Set, Go! is a nationwide three-step program that encourages Arizonans to get READY by preparing now for threats to their community, be SET by maintaining awareness of significant danger, and to GO by evacuating immediately when the danger is current and life-threatening.
Yavapai County uses CodeRED as its emergency notification system. The service sends alerts to residents and businesses when an emergency or time-sensitive issue arises. When you sign up, you can specify how to receive messages, whether by voice, text, or email. Sign up for CodeRED. CodeRED alerts are also shared on Yavapai County Sheriff Twitter and Facebook.
