ALERT Chatham is a program provided by Chatham County Emergency Management that allows you to receive notifications via phone calls, text messaging, e-mail and more based on locations you select.  This system will be used to notify you about imminent threats to health and safety as well as other notifications that may affect your home or workplace. Authorities may use the system to send notifications regarding flooding, gas leaks, police activity, and other events in which you may need to take action to protect yourselves, your family, or your co-workers.  Chatham County uses the CodeRED® mass notification system platform to send notifications.


The system is used county-wide, and may be requested by authorized officials with Chatham County, or the Towns of Goldston, Pittsboro, or Siler City.  It is activated through a secure portal by Chatham County Communications or Emergency Management.
