Registration for Huron Ready Community Notification is for HURON COUNTY Residents only.

This community notification system is able to send telephone notifications to residents and businesses within Huron County impacted by, or in danger of being impacted by, an emergency or disaster.

We also post relevant and timely messages pertaining to emergency and public safety issues within the county on our @HuronReady Twitter account.

The Huron Ready Community Notification system can be used to quickly notify the public during any of the following types of emergencies:

  • Boil water advisories
  • Missing children or persons
  • Flood events and other major natural disasters
  • Chemical spills
  • Crime prevention and alerts (i.e. burglaries in a neighbourhood)
  • Rabid or dangerous animal alerts
  • Other emergency-related alerts

Alerts can be issued for a single neighbourhood, one or more municipalities, a radius surrounding an incident, an area of shoreline, or the entire county. They can be issued 24 hours a day.

Emergency response personnel use the system to notify only those homes and businesses at risk with information on the event and/or actions (such as boil water advisories or evacuation) they are being asked to take.

It can take as little as 15 minutes to start a mass telephone campaign to the public during emergency situations.

Our community notification system relies on information provided by residents and property owners. Only numbers within our system can receive a call during an emergency notification campaign. Contact numbers can include home, work and/or cellular telephone numbers.
