East County Wildfire & Emergency Alert Service

East County Magazine's Weekly E-Newsletter

East County Dining Club invitations and other ECM event notices

Sign up to receive East County Magazine's free weekly newsletter plus free Wildfire & Emergency Alerts. As a nonprofit organization, we value your privacy, so you will not receive mailings from anyone other than East County Magazine and our East County Wildfire & Emergency alert service, as well as invitations to our events that benefit these causes including East County Dining Club events and several other festive events per year.

Our alerts come via e-mail, so unlike phone alerts, ours can reach you even if phone lines or cell phone towers burn down. We cover wildfires, flash floods, major highway shut-downs, severe weather alerts and other emergencies.

Our weekly e-newsletters feature the week’s top news headlines from East County and San Diego's inland  areas, festivals and events, and more.

As subscribers to these lists, you will also receive occasional (a few times a year) invitations to events hosted by our nonprofits East County Magazine and East County Media to benefit our nnonprofit news organization and our East County Wildfire & Emergency Alerts.  We value your privacy and will never give or sell your contact information to anyone else.

Stay safe and informed! Sign up today –all we need is your name and email address!

 You can also follow EastCountyAlert on Twitter for brief text alerts. We recommend BOTH the e-mail alerts (link above) and Twitter alerts (below), since during a fire, cell phone towers, phone lines, or Internet cables may disrupt one or more forms of communication. Many people also opt to sign up for alerts through multiple accounts (home, work, school).

We extend our deep appreciation to our major sponsors,  Grossmont Healthcare District and the San Diego Regional Fire Foundation,  to our readers who have sent individual donations, and to the #Facebook Journalism Project for supporting our emergency coverage during the COVID-19 shutdown.
