Local radio and television stations will provide information in the event of a major emergency.  In some instances, the Emergency Alert System may be activated. 

Specific emergency instructions will be broadcast by AM radio:

KFBK 1530 AM               KUBA 1600 AM                KMJE 1015 AM            KMYC 1410 AM

Emergency instructions will provide information on whether it is safer to evacuate your home and/or workplace or whether you will be better protected by Sheltering in Place.   If you are ordered to evacuate, the radio announcements will also advise you on the safest place to go. 

Using a central control radio station (1410 AM), this system allows each local government to pass reliable life and property-saving warnings as well as emergency information to the residents of the community during day to day emergencies or disasters. COS - CABLE OVERRIDE SYSTEM - A service provided to all Yuba County and Sutter County residents that subscribe to cable television. COS will be used by the Office of Emergency Services if an emergency (i.e. flood, hazardous materials accident, earthquake, etc.) threatens the County(ies). COS is NOT a replacement for your local EBS station.
