The service is also active in other cities throughout the county, including Woodland, Davis, West Sacramento and Dunnigan and is a part of a joint network that also serves communities in Sacramento and Placer counties. In January, emergency officials tested the notification system in all three counties simultaneous. The test is likely to be an annual occurrence, according to a press release. Miller encouraged people to sign up for Winters-specific Everbridge alerts by visiting www.yolo-alert.org. The cost to receive emergency alerts through Everbridge is free, though fees may be incurred by some depending on their phone carrier; those who may face carrier charges can download the free Everbridge app for Apple or Android phones where those same alerts are delivered as app-based push notifications.]]>
