Avondale recognizes National Preparedness Month by asking the community to register for Local Reverse 9-1-1

September is National Preparedness Month, and Avondale public safety and communications officials want you to be prepared by making certain your family will be informed, and stay informed with local reverse 9-1-1.

Local Reverse 9-1-1 is also known as Community Emergency Notification System (CENS). CENS allows emergency responders to reach out to you via text alerts or voice recorded prompt in the case of an emergency in your specific neighborhood. Notifications could include fires, floods, hazardous spills, police incidents, missing children, and endangered adults. Each registered cell number is directly associated with your home address (up to 3 numbers per address). 

Said Mike Folia, Avondale Police Communications Manager: “National Preparedness Month is an excellent opportunity for us to think about the steps we can take to keep ourselves and our families safe and informed in times of an emergency or disaster. Registering for local reverse 9-1-1 should be a part of your emergency preparedness planning.”

Register online at www.911alertsyou.com .  Do not text 9-1-1 to register.  9-1-1 should only be used in an emergency.  If you move, it is your responsibility to re-register.

CENS is administered by the Maricopa Association of Governments, in partnership with local agency 9-1-1 communicators.
