Register cell, VoIP phones for emergency alerts

City of Sierra Vista

City and county residents can now register their cell and Voice over Internet Protocol, VoIP, phone numbers to receive information in case a local emergency situation arises. Register now at www.SierraVistaAZ.gov and click on the link on the home page.

The City of Sierra Vista, the only area provider with Reverse 911 capabilities, has recently upgraded its system to accommodate residents without traditional landlines.

“Adding this capability was necessary to ensure accurate and timely information for residents’ safety as more people are dropping their landline and using cell or VoIP phones as their only telephone service,” says Adam Thrasher, Sierra Vista deputy police chief.

Those who register will be asked to provide their name, address, primary and secondary numbers and email addresses. After entering your home address, a map on the site will show the geographic location that should match your address. If the location is inaccurate, simply use your mouse to move the map pin and update your location. “This is especially useful for people who may live down a long drive,” Thrasher says.

A final step to registration is to verify the primary email address. After registering, an automatic email will be sent that includes a confirmation link.

Information entered on the site is kept confidential and will only be used to share emergency information. When an emergency situation arises, only residents living in the affected area will be notified by the system.

The database is updated by the provider every Monday, so residents are urged not to wait for an emergency to enter their phone number into the system.

Frequently asked questions about the system is available online at www.SierraVistaAz.gov. Questions can be emailed to SVPD@SierraVistaAZ.gov or call 452.7500.
