YES - we highly recommend that everyone provide a home and/or work physical address when registering. The Delta County Alerts system works best to notify you of incidents near your home when the system has a physical address programmed into the system. If we do not have your address, the system will not be able to send geo-targeted (i.e. location based) alerts or critical weather alerts. We also recommend that you register your children's school(s) so you can be alerted to public safety issues alerts near the school(s).
Note, regardless of whether you register your full address, the system will prompt all users to provide the following information to assist us in sending emergency notifications to geographical regions of the county:
- Home Zip Code
- Select the Fire Protection District you live in
- Select the area of your residence from the list of geographical areas
