ALERT: Alabama Emergency Response Technology
The Alabama Emergency Response Technology (ALERT) system is a secure, Internet-based, emergency alert notification system. When emergencies such as disease outbreaks, bioterrorism, natural disasters, or large-scale accidents occur, the ALERT system notifies participating first responders and emergency preparedness teams using profiles in which participants specify up to five methods of contact for each of the three priority levels of alerts.
ALERT contains more than 5,000 participants from state and local health departments, hospitals, clinics, and many other critical first reponders across the state. It also includes many of Alabama's state government agencies.
