Free Text Message Alert System is Lifeline for Homeless during Disasters

The County Office of Supportive Housing’s staff has created a lifeline for homeless individuals by using a text message alert system (AlertSCC) to convey critical disaster alerts and weather warnings. Staff also uses the system to direct people to life-saving resources such as cooling centers and tips for keeping safe in the heat.

Please share information about this free service with service providers and at-risk individuals. For more details, visit: AlertSCC or contact Patty Eaton, Public and Risk Communication Officer at patty.eaton@oes.sccgov.org
