Community Emergency Notification System
Oconee County, South Carolina

The Oconee County Sheriff's Office Emergency Communications/E-911 Division, in partnership with Oconee County Emergency Services and Everbridge, Inc., has instituted a regional notification system that will be able to send telephone notifications to residents and businesses within Oconee County impacted by, or in danger of being impacted by, an emergency or disaster. This system, called AlertOconee, will be used by emergency response personnel to notify those homes and businesses at risk with information on the event and/or actions (such as evacuation) we are asking them to take. The system utilizes the region's 9-1-1 database, provided by the local telephone company(ies), and thus is able to contact land-line telephones whether listed or unlisted. It is TTY/TDD capable.

Because the system uses the 9-1-1 database, only land-line numbers are in the system. If you have a Voice over IP (VoIP) or cellular telephone and would like to be notified over that device, or if you would like an email notification, you must register those telephone numbers and/or email address for use by the system.

To register your VoIP, cellular telephone or email address, please click the button below. Each number and/or email provided will be added to the regional database. You will receive a confirming email message to the address entered below once you have successfully registered with AlertOconee.

The telephone number you register below will be called only when the address it is associated with is impacted by a disaster or emergency.
