This committee consists of high level officials from police and fire departments of the member agencies. The committee was formed in December 1993 to provide additional participation by management in the coordination of the MAG Regional 9-1-1 System.
CENS, or Reverse 9-1-1®, is the Community Emergency Notification System. The system is designed to rapidly notify an affected area of an emergency by sending a recorded message through the telephone system. CENS uses the 9-1-1 database to extract phone numbers determined by the circle or area drawn on the CENS map. CENS launches a prerecorded message to the telephone numbers in the area defined.
Cell and VoIP phones are not part of the 911 database. You now have the option to register your Cell or VoIP phone with the CENS system. You will only receive CENS notifications based on the address you provide for your Cell and or VoIP phone.
Residents wishing to self-register their cell phones or VoIP phones in the CENS program must do so through the self registration link on the website at: www.911alertsyou.com. Registrations completed by 5:00 p.m. will be added to the CENS system overnight.
