This could be the call that saves a life. Will you be answering your phone?
The Brazos County Emergency Notification System was created to notify citizens of local emergencies that occur day or night. Until now the system was only able to reach out to businesses and residences with land lines. However, many people no longer have land lines in their homes, choosing to rely on just their cell phones.
The ability to register your cell phone is now possible with the new Self-Registration Portal (SRP) website: https://brazos.onthealert.com. Register your cell phone and your email address at this website so that you can have more options to be notified in case of an emergency situation in Brazos County. An email address is necessary for the system to contact you periodically to verify that your information is still correct. If you do not currently have an email address, one suggestion is to contact your internet provider to get one or register for a free email address with a service such as Yahoo or Google.
