[ARCHIVED] Sign up for Reverse 911

During the power outage in July, the police department issued “Reverse 911” calls with updates on the situation. Unfortunately, not all of the calls were received on land lines which were connected to answering machines because of the power failure and were primarily received on cellular phones. As a result, the City is asking the public to sign up with their cellular numbers.

To register to receive “Reverse 911” calls to either or both your home landline and your mobile phone line, go to It is very easy to sign up and you are allowed to sign up two different phone numbers and two different email addresses along with your physical address.
Such emergencies could include but are not limited to:
• Evacuations
• Threatening floods or fires
• Hazardous material spills
• Terrorist threats and other urgent law enforcement operations
The El Dorado County Alert Notification System has made it easy to register your chosen contact information through the systems Self Registration Portal. You can then receive notification on your cellular telephone via phone call or text, or at your email address. It’s up to you. To register your emergency contact information or just to find out more information about the system, go to:
• If you receive an “error” message stating that your address cannot be found, simply “refresh” the webpage and try again. This should be the solution.

Social media via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram proved to be the most effective way to inform the public of yesterday’s emergency situation. You can find the links to the City's Facebook and Twitter accounts on our homepage. (scroll to the bottom of the page, look on the right side).
