If you are a county resident please register for the Emergency Mass Notification System. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is able to alert residents about fires, floods, toxic environmental issues and other emergencies using Everbridge Aware™ mass notification system. Messages can be sent to residents on – cell phone, home phone, email, text messaging, pager, PDA and more – ensuring that individuals that work in the county or reside here receive life-saving emergency information and important public service announcements. Any Century Link home phone listed in the county’s 9-1-1 database is automatically subscribed to alerts by phone. If your home phone service is any provider other than Century Link, you will need to contact your phone provider to determine if you have been registered. If you are not registered please go to the below link to register. It is suggested that all county residents and those that work in Douglas County register and provide additional contact information such as cell phones, text messaging, home and work email, etc…. (It is suggested that if you work at a location that has a large phone system or PBX type system that you do not register your work line). This will ensure you will receive important emergency information that is affecting your residence or place of work, no matter where you are. It is also suggested that you include all forms of communication devices for all residents living at your address including children.
