About the new AlbanyAlerts, part of the OR-Alert system
This change was part of a statewide project called OR-Alert. Fully deployed, OR-Alert will provide statewide access to a modern and interoperable alerts, warnings and notifications (AWN) system, enabling real-time sharing of hazard information across Oregon's 36 Counties and Tribal governments and providing access to FEMA's Integrated Alerts and Warnings System (IPAWS). The City of Albany, Linn and Benton counties, and the City of Corvallis were chosen for early integration into this new system.
The City of Albany now has a more efficient platform for pushing out alerts to our community and will save almost $6000 per year as a result of joining this statewide OR-Alert system.
