Clark County along with our neighboring counties in Southwest Washington are in the process of transitioning from our current Emergency Community Notification System to a new system by the first part of April. As part of that transition we are asking the public to once again register your mobile and VOIP devices to ensure you receive notice if we need to notify you.
During the process of transitioning from one company, to our new vendor, we have done our best to ensure all your numbers that you had registered prior transferred also, however we are encouraging everyone to register and re-register your devices with the new system.
Besides ensuring your numbers and address are correct and up to date, there are some additional reasons we think its a good idea to once again register your mobile devices.
- Additional methods of receiving notifications - The new system allows you to include not only SMS or text messaging for notification but also email.
- Additional Phones per household - The new system allows you to register multiple phones to your address at one time including multiple cell phones.
- No Email or Account Needed - The old system required individuals to create an account and have an email address to sign up for the registry. That is not a requirement in the new system.
So please, take a few minutes to help us help you and register your mobile phones. This link will take you to our sign up page. Here is more information on why and methods to of getting notification.
