Citizen Alert

If you havenít signed up for Jackson County Citizen Alert, now is the time! During last year's wildfire season, it was apparent that many citizens were not receiving emergency alerts. The City of Medford and Medford Fire-Rescue use the Jackson County Citizen Alert system to notify residents of important public safety information, such as wildfire evacuations, hazardous materials accidents or even a fugitive in your area.
Landline phone numbers (both published and non-published) are automatically provided to the emergency notification system by the phone company, however many people donít have a landline phone anymore. Cellular companies do not provide telephone numbers to the system. If you do not have a landline telephone at your home, we do not have your information and therefore, we cannot alert you about potentially dangerous situations. Signing up for Jackson County Citizen Alert enables you to receive timely notification wherever you are.
Fire Chief Brian Fish suggests that all residents of the City of Medford and Medford Rural Fire Protection District #2 sign up to receive emergency messages from Citizen Alert. This will maximize your ability to receive emergency notifications and accurate up-to-date information in a timely manner for events that may affect your personal safety and property.
Jackson County, City of Medford, and Medford Fire-Rescue donít share your information with anyone. Your information is only used to send you emergency information, and (if you choose) important community alerts.
