This Friday, September 4 at 10 a.m., Yolo County will be testing its Winters area alert system.
The county is conducting this test after many area residents notified the county they did not receive any alerts during the recent fires, Yolo County Public Information Officer Jenny Tan said.
The notification will be sent to zones 58,59, and 60 only. These zones include the City of Winters and areas directly east to the Solano County line.
The old system had not been updated and, subsequently, many numbers notified were not current numbers, Tan said.
Residents who do not receive the alert by 2 p.m. should call county staff at 530-406-4930.
