In a community-wide emergency, communications can play a key role in keeping people out of harm’s way and providing info on the status and resolution of the situation. To reach as many people as possible with crucial information, the City’s emergency communications plan includes several information methods: the Cupertino Alert System, Cupertino.org, the City Channel, Radio Cupertino, and social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
Of all of the emergency communications methods, this is the most important. In the event of a disaster, the City will notify you directly via telephone, email, SMS and/or fax. Make sure you are registered to receive alerts by going to the AlertSCC Opt-In/Out Portal Page.
In the event of an emergency, look for pertinent info on the Current Emergency Event page, as well as any press releases on the News & Info page.
Radio & TV
In the event of a disaster, information will be broadcast as soon as possible on Radio Cupertino 1670 AM and on the City Channel (Channel 26 on Comcast Cable or Channel 99 on AT&T). Note that Radio Cupertino has a limited range, especially at night.
