ReadyChesco is an alert system for Chester County that helps County and Local officials send emergency text alerts and voice calls to you quickly. ReadyChesco can send these to your cell phone, home phone, office phone, pager, and/or E-mail account.
This system will be used to provide ongoing government information to alert those groups that you have signed up for. Emergencies can happen at any time and it is ReadyChesco’s goal to send you critical information as quickly as possible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The system will also be used to relay emergency notifications such as evacuation and shelter-in-place orders to all users in the system.
When ReadyChesco issues a notification you will receive a message on the phone, text, and/or email methods that you have registered. Some messages, focused around life safety, may request that you confirm the message and ReadyChesco will try to get a hold of you a couple of times until you confirm receipt of the message.
If you decide to get text messages on your cell phone or wireless device, your wireless carrier may charge you a fee. You may contact your carrier to find out how much these text messages may cost you with your current plan. You can opt out of text messages at any time.
