ReadyKern can send emergency information by phone, email

Kern County has implemented ReadyKern, an emergency notification system alerts residents and businesses about natural disasters and other crises.

The new emergency notification system allows Kern County to provide essential information quickly in a variety of situations, such as earthquakes, severe weather, fires, floods, or evacuation of buildings or neighborhoods.

Many residents and businesses have already been registered by their listed phone numbers. Register at .

The Caller ID number for calls generated by the ReadyKern service is (661) 868-1143. Every message will begin with an introduction that identifies it as an urgent emergency message.

Recipients must acknowledge the message by listening to the entire message and pressing 1.

Residents and businesses can opt out of the system.
