Reverse 9-1-1®: Make Sure You're Connected!
updated: Nov 01, 2013, 12:33 PM

Source: Santa Barbara County Office of Emergency Management

Santa Barbara County emergency responders use several methods to communicate to their residents during emergencies. An important communication tool is the emergency telephone notification system; Reverse 9-1-1®. The Reverse 9-1-1® system is managed by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department. In the event of an emergency, an operator can identify the affected neighborhood or region of the city and record a message that describes the situation. The Reverse 9-1-1 system will automatically call listed and unlisted telephone numbers within the affected area and deliver the recorded message.

While Reverse 9-1-1® uses telephone company data to enroll every telephone landline - including voice over Internet phones, residents must register their cellular phones. Residents wishing to register their cell phones and/or e-mail address into the Reverse 9-1-1® system, may go to the Sheriff's Department web page at http://www.sbsheriff.org/reverse911a.html. There residents will find several frequently asked questions and the ability to link their cell phone with an address.
