Citizen Alert System Notification Sign Up

You do not have to be a resident to register. The system allows for those who live outside the area but have family or own property in Tuolumne County. The system allows registrants to enter an address in the system so that they can be notified if that address falls within a designated area of a notification. Additionally, individuals may enter multiple locations, i.e. (parent’s house, children’s school, workplace, etc.). It is essential that you enter information into all data fields especially any address that you enter. The address must be verified within the system, no post office boxes. Without a valid address the system will not be able to locate you when we launch a notification.

With that said, we are hoping that you will share this information with family, friends, and neighbors.
