A test of the ClatsopALERTS! emergency notification system takes place Wednesday.

The test will send messages out to residential and business landline phones as well as cell phones, email addresses and social media sites registered with ClatsopALERTS!

The test is the first of a series that will be carried out quarterly with the goal of raising awareness of the services and encouraging more people to sign up.

The county and cities of Astoria, Cannon Beach, Gearhart, Seaside and Warrenton are partners in the system.

Landline phones are automatically included in the ClatsopALERTS! database, but to receive messages on cell phones, users must register their numbers.
