Before you can take the proper course of action during an emergency, you must first know that the emergency is occurring. Oglethorpe County uses several tools to notify the public about disasters and emergency situations, working together to ensure that the maximum numbers of people are notified of an immediate, life threatening emergency.

NOAA Weather Radios

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather radios may be purchased at most retailers and are the primary tool for alerting people of weather and other emergencies.
