Upcoming Community Meetings to Discuss Emergency Alerts & Fire Detection Cameras

Let's talk about emergency alerts and fire detection cameras


Please join the City of Santa Rosa for an upcoming community meeting to talk about emergency notifications and fire detection systems

The wildfires experienced in 2017 revealed the City’s need to strengthen our emergency notification and fire detection systems. The City is taking steps to ensure that our community is prepared in the event of another disaster and invites your input as we consider options to expand the ways in which we are able to monitor potential threats and notify the public during an emergency. Attend one of the following meetings and join the conversation.

October 17, 2018 from 5:30 - 7:00pm
Finley Community Center, 2060 West College Avenue

October 25, 2018 from 5:30- 7:00pm
Binkley Elementary School, 4965 Canyon Drive

November 7, 2018 from 5:30 - 7:00pm
Roseland Accelerated Middle School (RAMS) Gym, 1777 West Avenue

November 14, 2018 from 1:00 - 2:30pm
Oakmont Village Berger Center, 6633 Oakmont Drive


Each meeting will cover the same topics. Attend one to:

REVIEW the current tools in place to notify residents during an emergency. City staff will be available to provide one-on-one assistance to help you sign up for SoCoAlert and Nixle, as needed.

LEARN about various emergency notification and fire detection tools the City is considering acquiring as additions to our existing system and provide your input on these options.

RECEIVE a free emergency GO BAG to help you get your family’s emergency plan started.

During each meeting, we will be using an audience interaction system called voxvote. You will be able to submit your input and answer questions from our presenters, all from your own cell phone or other mobile device. You will also be able to submit your own questions to our speakers using your device. Hard copy surveys will also be available if you prefer not to use voxvote.


For questions, contact the Office of Community Engagement at 707-543-4696.
