County Sheriff's Office,
through a cooperative agreement with several local municipalities, has entered
into a contract for a new Emergency Mass Notification System. This will allow
local agencies to send out emergency notifications to a large audience in a
very short time frame. The system is now online and the citizens of Butte
County are encouraged to sign up for notifications on the self-registration
portal. The web portal
allows users to add email addresses, cellular numbers and land line phone
numbers and attach those numbers and email addresses to their home on a map.
While the majority of traditional land line phone numbers are shared with Law
Enforcement for emergency usage, cellular phone numbers and Voice over Internet
Protocol (VOIP) phone numbers are not currently shared.
