Harnett County Emergency Management announced changes to the way severe weather alert notifications will be delivered to the public. These new changes will go into effect on August 1, 2022.
Harnett County Emergency Management will no longer send out weather watch and warning emails. To receive weather watch and warning alerts, interested individuals will need to register with the County’s RAVE Public Notification System.
“In an effort to reduce warning fatigue and stay up-to-date on technology, our weather Watch and Warning emails will no longer be automatically sent out through our Emergency Management email,” stated Emergency Management Coordinator Zach Shean. “If residents would like to receive severe weather notifications, we encourage you to sign up for our RAVE Public Notification System.”
The RAVE Public Notification System is used by Harnett County Emergency Services to contact the public in the event of an emergency. The system will send notifications on any evacuations, sheltering, and other emergency notifications during a severe weather event. Individuals can select how to receive information by text message, email, phone call, or a combination of all three.
Interested individuals can sign up for the RAVE Public Notification System by following these steps.
