Wildland Fire Season Is Here—Have You Signed Up for Alerts?

Linda Shannon-Hills

Pinal County has implemented an emergency mass notification system to alert residents and businesses about emergencies and other important community news. The Pinal Emergency Notification System (PENS) enables Pinal County to provide residents with critical information quickly and effectively in a variety of situations, such as major roadwork, road closures, severe weather, fires, hazardous materials incidents, evacuations, extreme heat warnings, and other emergency events.

Time-sensitive messages will be delivered for your chosen location, in whichever way you specify: via cell, home, and work phones, and by text messaging and/or email—you pick where, you pick how. Stay informed and sign up today! Visit the Pinal County website at www.pinalcountyaz.gov. On the right side of the front page, scroll down to “Sign up for…” and click on “Emergency Notification System.”
