Local governments work with COG to build and maintain citizen warning systems able to rapidly alert residents with vital information. The technology sends alerts to devices capable of receiving them, such as smartphones, most wireless phones, home land lines, computers, and tablets. To make it easier for residents to find and sign up for alerts from one or more jurisdictions, the region created Capitalert with links to the different local government systems.
