Emergency Notificaton System for Mobile Phones
Emergency Notification System for Mobile Phones
The Emergency Notification System is funded by the Montrose Emergency Telephone Service Authority and the emergency services. It has historically been used to send recorded messages to wireline phones in areas affected by emergencies. Wireline phones are automatically entered in the system when they are initialized.
Residents may now enter their cellular and mobile Internet phones in the system via the registration web page to receive voice and/or text emergency messages.
The system uses a database of phone numbers and their physical addresses. If the system is activated, an emergency contact area is mapped. Phones with physical addresses in the mapped area are selected from the database. An appropriate outgoing message is recorded, and the system attempts to deliver that message to the selected phones. Depending on the nature of the emergency, the system may attempt to leave a voicemail in the event the user does not answer.
Please Note: Users must enter both a phone number and a valid physical address at the time of registration. Emergency messages may incur mobile phone usage charges. Phones will only be contacted in the event of an emergency.
For more information on the Emergency Notification System, please call the County Emergency Manager at 970-252-4023.
