Just 15 Minutes Could Save Your Life - Tuesday, April 08, 2014

More than 10,000 people across Central Texas have registered with the Capital Area Council of Governments’ newly updated RNS at http://wireless.capcog.org, and friends, neighbors and relatives are encouraged to join in today.

Register your cellphone, landline, email address or pager to get alerts by voice call, email or text. No Internet access? No problem. To register for the Regional Notification System by phone, just call toll free 866-484-3264, and you’ll be prompted for your contact information.

The free service, previously called the “Emergency Notification System, can alert participants if a large emergency or major incident were happening in their area or a loved one’s area across Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Llano, Travis and Williamson counties.

It has been used to warn people during a flood; to instruct residents during an ongoing law enforcement SWAT operation; and, in the 2011 Labor Day wildfire outbreak, to contact more than 9,000 residences and businesses in Bastrop, Travis, Fayette, Caldwell, Hays and Burnet counties.

Don’t delay – it takes just 15 minutes to sign up today. And to learn more about the Regional Notification System, download the frequently asked questions sheet at www.capcog.org/divisions/homeland-security/rns.
