The Cambria Fire Department implemented Genasys Protect, which aims to prepare residents and businesses for emergencies or evacuations before an event occurs.
Genasys Protect works by breaking the entire community into Zones, and each zone has a corresponding number on the map. A resident only needs to know their Zone identification number for evacuation and repopulation purposes. During an emergency, the Zone number will be provided along with clear evacuation instructions and emergency information. Genasys Protect will provide traffic in real-time, identify where possible evacuation centers will be located, and use the latest emergency information provided by incident commanders on the scene as the emergency event unfolds. Be prepared for the next natural disaster by KNOWING YOUR ZONE.
Know Your Zone in 5 Easy Steps:
1. Visit protect.genasys.com – type your address in the search bar or use your current address.
2. Click on the highlighted zone and locate the number of listed in the zone description panel.
3. Write your zone down and place it somewhere easily accessible by everyone in your house.
4. Click on Subscribe to Alerts to stay updated in case of an emergency.
5. Explore the information provided in your zone’s description panel and bookmark any useful links provided.
More information will be provided as we continue to roll out this exciting new program for Cambria. Cambrians are encouraged to download the Genasys Protect application on your smartphone, enter your address and save your zone. If you need more information, or if you are having trouble downloading the application or need assistance locating your Zone, please contact Interim Fire Chief Burkey or come to the "Meet the Interim Fire Chief" on Tuesday, December 19, 2023 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., and we would be happy to assist you.
