COOS COUNTY, Ore. -- A new alert system has been put in place in Coos County, to help alert people during an emergency.

The Coos County Sheriff's Office and the Coos County Commissioners are rolling out an emergency alert system called Everbridge.

Dispatchers can send out phone, text, and email alerts to community members about things like crashes, fires, or evacuations. Depending on the connection, the system can send out 100 short messages within five minutes.

Officials said the service is needed especially after the big fires in the state this summer. Dispatchers can circle the affected area and the notification will be sent out to residents in that area.

Alerts for non-emergencies can also be sent out.

People can sign up for the alert system by click here.
