Ensure access to timely and informative alerts, warnings, and notifications (AWNs) through implementation of a statewide system that enables state, county, city and tribal governments to issue AWNs—providing people in Oregon with meaningful opportunities to make life-saving decisions in the face of emergencies


Currently, 16 of 36 counties within Oregon lack the ability to reach wireless subscribers via FEMA's Integrated Alerts and Warnings System (IPAWs) and can only reach users that have opted-in to a local alerts, warnings and notification (AWN) system.

Given the increase in devastating wildfires in Oregon, and ongoing efforts to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, a lack of critical hazard information leaves thousands of people in Oregon at risk.

Powered by Everbridge, OR-Alert will provide statewide access to modern, interoperable AWN capabilities and enable real-time sharing of hazard information across Oregon.

The availability of timely AWNs across multiple channels, including text, landline and cellular voice, social media and broadcast media will enable people in Oregon to make critical decisions in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disasters and emergency incidents—saving both property and lives.
