    Remember the olden’ days,when people didn’t need alerts and alarms,smart phone calls,e-mails and text messages churning out advise on how to get through possible and/or upcoming maybe emergency events,with others telling you how to survive them ?
    And especially when it involves early morning phone calls made ahead of time in order to get your information..

      Many years ago, while with the lifeguard service in Los Angeles, I had a secretary from England. She told me a story about how, when she first came to New York, she walked up to the hotel clerk and asked that she be “knocked up at 6am.” She said his jaw dropped! Here we ask for “wake-up calls”; there apparently, they prefer to get “knocked up!” As you said, who needs all this technology when you can get “knocked up” at 6:15 in person rather than an annoying phone call! Are we spoiled…or not spoiled enough?

        Throughout my life,whenever I myself needed to wake up early,I used this invention called an alarm clock.
        I even set the time and turned it on all by myself !
        When we had that earthquake a few months ago,I was offered a free smart phone,just “in case” we had another,bigger one,and I needed to be told about it, advised and told what to do next,if it were to happen.
        I turned the offer down,figuring ,if another one did come along,I’d somehow feel it myself and act accordingly,depending how big it might be.. without sitting in a chair waiting and watching my phone,telling me what was happening,why the house was shaking,and what I should do next.

    I am 85 ears old and getting a phone call at 6:15 am scared the hell out of me. Surely you can find a better time for a non-emergency call!!

    I appreciate having a system like Code Red Notification available to me. However, I did not like getting the reminder to update call at 6:17 this morning. Hearing my phone ring at that time made me think someone was calling about a real emergency!

    And can you please explain why this red alert message went out at dawn this morning. Yes 6am, to my cell phone and my house phone. What the heck. Was this the only time you people could have done a test.
    What you guys are a bunch of country Bumpkins.

    So is this different than the previous emergency alert system the county had been using? If we’ve been previously registered, and have not had any changes in contact info, are any actions required to continue receiving emergency notifications?
