On behalf of Harris County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management I would like to share some valuable information with you about Accessible Alerts.

Harris County is partnering with Deaf Link to provide the Ready Harris Accessible Alert Program which will send accessible alert messages before, during, and after an emergency or disaster in Harris County to registered residents who are Deaf, Blind, Hard of Hearing, or Deaf / Blind.

Ready Harris Accessible Alert subscribers in an area affected by an emergency or disaster will be able to receive an accessible alert message in American Sign Language (ASL) and English voice and text. The alert message could include information about the emergency and what actions to take.

Ready Harris will send accessible alert messages to internet and video capable devices such as computers, cell phones, smart phones, tablet computers, and wireless Braille readers.

Prepare, Plan, and Stay Informed. Complete the Ready Harris Accessible Alert signup form and check the box to receive alert messages in accessible formats. Sign up here for alert messages in accessible formats.
