ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Shared Alert SystemWhere: Arizona
What: The Region Communicates Through a Shared Alert System
Pillars: Advocacy
What Happened: The Emergency Management Committee continues to develop shared systems for cross-border alerts and notifications. In 2007, Arizona acquired a web-based alert and notification system which is now available to the State of Sonora and its communities. It is an advantage to emergency services providers as they work to prevent and respond to emergencies in the area.
