City of Austin and Travis County

Austin and Travis County are partnering with Deaf Link to provide the Accessible Hazard Alert System (AHAS) which will send accessible alert messages to registered residents who are Deaf, Blind, Hard of Hearing, or Deaf/Blind before, during, and after an emergency or disaster in Travis County.

Austin and Travis County AHAS subscribers 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.

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

Our steps to emergency preparedness are Make a Plan, Build a Kit, Know your Neighbors, and Stay Informed. Complete the Austin / Travis County AHAS signup form and check the box to receive alert messages in accessible formats. Sign up here for alert messages in accessible formats.
