A mass emergency notification system will soon be available for Chico residents.
The Chico Police Department announced they will join the county and the Paradise Police Department in using the Geocast Web program.
They say it will help warn the public of everything from fires to felons through phone calls.
If a resident self-registers for Geocast Web, they have the option to be notified through e-mail or text message.
"For Chico Police Department I see the biggest use like those incidents yesterday where we want to get the information out to everyone that this person may be in the area or a missing person, we have a missing juvenile," Chico Police Communications and Records Manager Nancy Wilson said.
