KERN COUNTY EMERGENCY ALERT PROGRAM
 
Kern County has implemented ReadyKern, a state-of-the-art emergency notification system to alert residents and businesses about natural disasters and other crises. The new emergency notification system enables Kern County to provide essential information quickly in a variety of situations, such as earthquakes, severe weather, fires, floods, or evacuation of buildings or neighborhoods.
 
The process begins when Kern County issues a message about a potential safety hazard or concern. Messages will be sent to all standard voice and text communication devices, including land line phones, cell phones, e-mail, and more. If you don't confirm receipt of the message, the system will try to reach your second contact number or email. The system will continue trying to contact you until it receives a confirmation from you.
To receive important communications from Kern County, residents and business owners must register the voice and text communication devices where they wish to receive messages.
 
Residents and businesses with listed telephone numbers have already been included in ReadyKern. You may add more ways to contact you by selecting one of the following two options:
 
Option 1 directs you to a secure website to create a user profile. After selecting "Sign up for Alerts" from the options on the left side of the page, you will be asked to enter a user name, password, security question, accept the Terms of Use and to enter characters for validation. You will then be walked through the rest of the registration process.
 
Option 1 allows you to manage your user profile and update your contact information at your convenience. All information you provide will be kept strictly confidential to the extent permitted by law.

Option 2 allows you to add your contact information without having to create a user profile. You may still manage your user profile and update your contact information at your convenience. All information you provide will be kept strictly confidential to the extent permitted by law.
