Mason Alert Now Only Delivers Emergency Messages

The Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) is a system that broadcasts public safety messages (like AMBER Alerts, Earthquake Early Warning Alerts, Tsunami Alerts) over the commercial cellular system. Customers with compatible mobile phones can receive geographically targeted, text-like messages alerting them to threats to safety in their area. All WEA alerts, regardless of type, behave the same. The device makes a distinctive notification sound and vibration, and the message pops up in a text window on the screen.

OR-Alert is meant to be a resource to search for your local emergency alerts in Oregon. Once you are re-routed you can sign up. You can also go directly to your county sheriff or county emergency management website to sign up or update your information for alerts. Additionally, you can download the Everbridge app and register there or text in your zip code to 888777 to be anonymously registered for alerts.

The best way to ensure you are notified in an emergency is to sign up for alerts at the county level and/or download the Everbridge mobile app. Another option is to text your zip code to 888777. Finally, you should always try to monitor local TV and/or radio outlets during an emergency.

The Newton Public Schools works closely with the staff in our Office of Information Technology to ensure up-to-date communication tools are available to support our emergency response systems. NPS utilizes the SchoolMessenger communication system, which allows us to alert staff and families through a phone call, email, or text message in an emergency. We are able to communicate with families, faculty, and staff 24 hours a day and in multiple languages. SchoolMessenger utilizes data (phone and email address) entered into the district's student information system, Aspen. Families also have the choice to opt out of this messaging, and can change their settings by logging into the Aspen student information system ( ) and adjusting their communication preferences and contact information.
