An Emergency Alert System is coming to the Hill.

Idyllwild Fire Protection District has approved and purchased (with the help of the Fern Valley Water District) an alert siren which will be placed in service early in 2021.

Riverside County Emergency Management Department is considering a system of sirens for Pine Cove, Mountain Center and other areas within their jurisdiction.

These systems are intended to alert our communities of potential threats.

MDP has been a proponent of an alert system for several years and is grateful for the agency’s support.

WNKI (local AM radio 1610) and MDP’s Idyllwild Emergency will be key components of information distribution of the system. 

Consult this page for updated information on the systems.
