The Tehama County Sheriff’s Office, Red Bluff Police Department and Corning Police Department use Tehama Alert to notify you of a potential fire, gas leak, flood or other natural or man-caused incident in your local area that would prompt an immediate evacuation or shelter in place protocols. In most of these instances, sufficient information should be provided for you to act upon. Please do not dial 911 or otherwise contact your local law enforcement agency with non-emergency questions or requests as your calls will likely delay the efforts of emergency service providers. Tune to your local media sources for additional information and standby for additional messages from Tehama Alert for more instructions or notification the emergency has passed.
Tehama Alert may also be used to broadcast information regarding lost or missing children/adults, or wanted and potentially dangerous people. A photo can actually be attached to the message. In these cases follow the instructions contained in the notification closely. The message will likely advise you to call 911 immediately if you make observations that will help police. This is an appropriate use of the 911 system and your assistance in this matter may directly impact public safety and will be greatly appreciated.
So please help us help you by signing up today and sharing this with friends. The service is free to the public.
