Aware and Prepare, Police Mobile App Offer Emergency Alerts

Source: Samantha Scroggin for the city of Lompoc

The city of Lompoc encourages everyone in the community to register to receive alerts on critical local information through the Santa Barbara County Aware and Prepare emergency notification system and the Lompoc Police Department’s mobile app.

Both systems enable Lompoc residents to receive via convenient mobile alerts the latest information on incidents affecting the community, such as recent wildfires.

The countywide Aware and Prepare notification system ensures area residents receive up-to-date information in the event of emergency incidents. Community members can customize their preferences and methods for receiving alerts, including text message, email and phone voice messages.

In addition, the Aware and Prepare website offers helpful tips and information that will benefit residents and visitors. The website includes guidance on completing and practicing an escape plan from a home, office or neighborhood.

For more information and to sign up for emergency alerts, visit www.awareandprepare.org.

The Lompoc Police Department’s mobile app, provided in partnership with LogicTree IT Solutions, is available for free download on Apple and Android mobile devices.

The Police Department’s mobile app enables the public to receive timely bulletins about missing people, stolen vehicles, traffic incidents and more.

The app also allows the public to easily submit tips (anonymously if desired), send comments and photos, and place non-emergency calls to the department with the touch of a button.

Emergencies should always be called in to 9-1-1. For more information, call the Lompoc Police Department, 736-2341.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
