The Kenai Peninsula Borough will be testing the KPB Alerts system on Wednesday April 15 between 11:00 am and 2:00pm.


This test is an important aspect of the system, and allows the Borough and vendor to determine if recent improvements to the system have been successful.  The objective is to deliver notifications as rapidly as possible without overloading local infrastructure.

Your feedback is essential.  If you experienced any difficulty receiving or understanding the call, or if you successfully received the message, please fill out our comment form.


The KPB Alerts system was put in place following the January 2018 tsunami warning, as deficiencies were identified in the previous notification system.  Residents of the Borough can register their address and phone number(s) online at to receive alerts.  Alerts are sent via phone call and text message, and are also posted under KPB Alerts on Facebook and Twitter.
