Henry County has implemented an emergency mass notification system that will be used to contact County residents and businesses via phone messages, text messages, emails or pagers in case of emergency. The system, called Henry County Emergency Notification System, will be used by the County’s Emergency Response Personal to notify residents and businesses of emergencies or critical situations and provide information regarding necessary actions, such as evacuations. The system utilizes the telephone companies’ 911 database and contacts land-line telephone numbers, whether listed or unlisted. If the call is picked up by an answering machine, the system will leave a recorded message. If the number called is busy or does not answer, the system will redial the number up to 4 times deliver the message.
Because the Henry County Emergency Notification System uses the 911 database, only land-line numbers are automatically included in the system. If you have a cell phone, pager, or email and would like to be notified that way, you must register those telephone numbers and/or e-mail addresses by completing the on-line registration.
