Cumberland Alerts provides many features in an easy-to-use format. Users will be able to personalize their notifications by selecting the location-based weather alerts they want to receive as well as how they would like to receive those alerts. Additionally, users will receive geographic-based alerts for situations such as law enforcement activity, missing persons and more. Alerts can be sent by voice or text communication to multiple devices including computers, land lines, cellphones and tablets.

When an alert is issued, a notification about a potential safety hazard or concern will be sent to subscribers by the communication path for which they registered. Users can confirm they have received the message and will not be contacted by any subsequent methods regarding that notification. If a user does not confirm, the system will continue to attempt to reach the user using all the contact paths they registered for.
