ALERTS HOW-TO GUIDE

Select Your Alert Notifications

Once you have created one or more AOIs under the My Areas tab, Alerts will begin to send you notifications of incidents inside those areas.

By default — without changing anything — you’ll only receive notifications from the National Response Center, an emergency call center in the United States that fields initial reports for pollution, spills and railroad incidents. SkyTruth Alerts contains many more types of alert incidents and more are being added.

You can change the alert notifications you receive by visiting the settings page. You’ll find the link in the heading.

The first time in, you’ll see only NRC checked.

To add/remove from the list, check or uncheck the box under the Send Me Alert Emails column. Click the Submit button to save your changes.
