I got an emergency alert on my phone, but no corresponding text alert.
Okay, I'm alert! About what?

Michele; I think what you got concerned the Sheriffs having located a missing at-risk person in Santa Maria. Somebody pushed the wrong button and sent it county-wide. It wasn't about the fire.

Oh thanks! Just wondering, did the Santa Maria alert come along with a text alert? Mine said nothing.

Yes, the text basically said they found the person safe, but I didn't get any prior alert; I was aware of the issue from the scanner. Don't know why you didn't get the text with the alert. We have AT&T, if that matters.

I am in Sana Maria and got the text saying she was found--but no prior text about a missing person, That system does not work!!!!!
