Our new reverse 911 system, Accu-Reach, allows us to dial a series of landline telephone numbers (calls can be organized by zip code, street(s,) or by geographic area) to alert citizens of impending or occurring emergencies.

The system also allows you to register your cellular phone. Since these numbers are not registered to a geographic area, you wil be notified anytime an alert is issued in the area you sign up for.
