Register with the Contra Costa County Community Warning System

The first step in emergency preparedness is to stay informed. A good place to start is by registering up to three telephone numbers with the Contra Costa County Community Warning System (CWS). The CWS will alert registered members of an emergency by telephone if there is a need to shelter in place, evacuate, avoid a designated area, locate a missing person, or be aware of law enforcement activity. The system also has the availability to text and email. Registration of your phone numbers and email address is quick and convenient using their website at: WWW.COCOCWS.US. You can also call (925) 313-9622 or email After doing so, you can follow the CWS on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter @CoCoCWS.
