AC Alert Program for all Piedmonters.

In Alameda County, there is an AC Alert Emergency Notification System, available to all Piedmonters, providing information on emergencies and incidents as they happen. This system allows the City to contact thousands of Piedmont residents in seconds so you can find out about an emergency right away.

How Does It Work?

The process begins when the City of Piedmont issues a message about a potential safety hazard or concern. Next, “AC Alert” sends a message through your primary contact path. If you don’t confirm receipt of the message, the system will try to reach your second contact path and continues trying to reach you until you confirm receipt.

The success of this service relies on YOUHaving your latest contact information is the only way to ensure that the City can contact you in an emergency. Sign up – it only takes about a minute to enroll! <click
