On behalf of Alachua County Emergency Management, I would like to share some valuable information with you about Accessible Alerts.
Alachua County is partnering with Deaf Link to provide the Accessible Hazard Alert System (AHAS) which will send accessible alert messages to registered residents who are Deaf, Blind, Hard of Hearing, or Deaf/Blind before, during, and after an emergency or disaster in Alachua County.
Alachua County AHAS subscribers in an area affected by an emergency or disaster will be able to receive accessible alert messages in American Sign Language (ASL) and English voice and text. The alert message could include information about the emergency and what actions to take.
Alachua County AHAS will send accessible alert messages to internet and video capable devices such as computers, cell phones, smart phones, tablets, and wireless Braille readers.
Prepare, Plan, and Stay Informed. Complete the Alachua County AHAS signup form to receive alert messages in accessible formats. Sign up today for alert messages in accessible formatsHERE at http://alc.ahasalerts.com.
