Sussex County Office of Emergency Management has announced that Sussex County has added a new capability to its emergency service capacity for the residents of the county.

The Community Alerting System, also known as Outbound 9-1-1, is an automated system that calls homes and businesses to notify them about serious emergencies. The system will also direct you to take specific actions during an emergency.

In the event of an emergency, public safety personnel will identify the affected area of Sussex County and activate the system. It will automatically call registered telephone numbers within a specified area and deliver a recorded message.

Uses for the Community Alerting System include but are not limited to the following:

Amber Alerts

Missing Person Alerts

Emergency Evacuations

Local Security & Crime Alerts

Weather Emergencies

Hazardous Materials Events
