Damage Assessment Forms

 

Do you have an unlisted phone number and want to receive emergency information calls?  Or would you prefer to receive the messages on your cell phone?  If so, sign up by clicking the South Central Alert button at the top left of the page.  Currently the system is based on white page listings and voluntary sign ups.  Your information will not be distributed!  Future phone messages through this system will use the following phone number, which will show up as the Caller ID:  717-217-4180.  You can also prioritize which number gets called first during self registration.  

 

Training documents and other information that may be helpful to those using the digital radios can be found on the Radio page.

 

Do you have a scanner you want to reprogram to the new county frequencies?  An analog scanner can still pick up the fire dispatch channel, but you will need a digital trunked scanner to listen to everything else.  Frequency list

 

ICS forms have been updated.  Go to the FEMA website to download click here.          EMI / FEMA ICS Job Aids

 

Are you or your family at risk if disaster strikes?  Find out by answering ten simple questions.  If you are at risk, you can fill out a couple pages of information so you will be prepared.  All this can be found on the CERT page.
