Emergency Information for wide-spread emergencies
In the event of a wide-spread emergency, information will go out via OEM’s public information blog and MCUrgent, our social media emergency notification system. Get messages on Facebook, Twitter or by text message.
To get messages via text, send follow @mcurgent to 40404.
If you post something you think we should know about, please mention us using @MCUrgent or use the hashtag #MCUrgent. Do not use MCUrgent for emergency response. Call 9-1-1.
