On behalf of the City of Fort Worth Office of Emergency Management, I would like to share some valuable information with you about Accessible Alerts.
The City of Fort Worth is partnering with Deaf Link to provide theAccessible Hazard Alert System (AHAS)which will send accessible alert messages to registered residents who are Deaf, Blind, Hard of Hearing, or Deaf/Blind before, during, and after an emergency or disaster in the City of Fort Worth.
Fort Worth AHAS 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.
Fort Worth AHAS 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 Fort Worth AHAS signup form and check the box to receive alert messages in accessible formats. Register for alert messages in accessible formats HERE.
