What systems/procedures are being tested? 150 150 Sonoma County Emergency and Preparedness Information
  • SoCoAlert (Sonoma County Alert System) alert and warning messages will be sent to assess the capabilities of two available alert and warning system providers — CodeRED and Everbridge — to reach residents of Sonoma County and identify gaps in those capabilities.
  • CodeRED is the County’s current alert system provider. Everbridge is a provider being made available by the California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) to test as part of a pilot program.
  • The Non-Weather Emergency Message system will be used to send a message to ensure the auxiliary alert system is fully functional. The message can be received by NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) Weather Radios. The Non-Weather Emergency Message portion of the exercise will be broadcast to all of Sonoma County. The transmitter is on Sonoma Mountain, which means some parts of the county will not receive the alerts.
