COMMUNITY WARNING SYSTEM DELIVERY STATISTICS
No technology is 100% effective, so CWS uses multiple notification channels in a best effort to notify citizens of the county of an emergency.
* Represents the elapsed time between when the alert was published and the latest text message was delivered to the cell phone carriers ( ATT, Verizon, Sprint, etc.) The majority of text messages reached cell phone carriers in less time. The time it takes a person to actually receive the text is dependent upon how quickly individual cell phone carriers deliver the message to their customers.
