The South Central Task Force (SCTF) and Cumberland County Department of Public Safety (DPS) are encouraging those who live and/or work in Cumberland County to register with the SCTF's new mass public notification system South Central Alert.


This system will be utilized by emergency managers in the county to alert citizens of urgent situations such as evacuation notices and instructions, shelter in place notifications or boil water advisories.
