James City County has launched a new way to communicate with residents – JCC Alert. With JCC Alert, citizens have quick access to emergency alerts, notifications and updates delivered by text message or e-mail to any cellular device or computer.  The new program was implemented by the County’s Emergency Management Division to help get important information out quickly when an incident or emergency occurs.  The voluntary program allows users to select their preferred methods of contact and manage their own information online.

While notifications are typically sent via text message and e-mail, JCC Alert will also call land-line and cell phones and leave recorded messages in the case of extreme emergencies.

Registering for JCC Alert is free, however users are responsible for any standard text message or data rates that may apply from their service provider.
