The Lewis and Clark County Sheriff's Office, Helena Police Department, and 911 Dispatch Center use a target notification system to send emergency alerts, such as evacuation orders, to county residents in specific areas by telephone. The service automatically contacts land lines.
If you wish to get emergency alerts via cell phone, you can register your number.
