Lexington AHAS

On behalf of the Lexington, Kentucky, Division of Emergency Management, I would like to share some valuable information with you about Accessible Alerts.

Lexington, Kentucky is partnering with Deaf Link to provide the Accessible Hazard Alert System (AHAS).This system will send accessible alert messages to registered residents who are deaf, blind, hard of hearing, or deaf and blind before, during, and after an emergency or disaster in Lexington and Fayette County Kentucky.

Lexington AHAS subscribers that live in an area affected by an emergency or disaster will be able to receive an accessible alert message in American Sign Language(ASL) and English voice and text.The alert message could include information about the emergency and what actions to take.

Lexington AHAS will send accessible alert messages to internet and video capable devices such as computers, cell phones, smart phones, tablet computers, and wireless Braille readers.

Prepare, plan, and stay informed. To receive alert messages in accessible formats, complete the Lexington AHAS signup form by clicking here.
