Emergency Notification Service PSA with Ty LawsonJune 7, 2021
This is a Public Service Announcement for 911Colorado.org featuring Ty Lawson and promoting registration of cellphones for Emergency Notification Service.
Emergency Notification Services are used by Authorities to warn people of floods, wildfires, chemical spills, police actions such as active manhunts, and other emergencies.
Traditional landline phone numbers and locations are generally registered automatically to receive these calls, as are some VoIP (Internet) phones. Cellphones and many VoIP phones need to be manually registered by the individual user, however.
With approximately 50% of households subscribing to cellphone or VoIP (Internet) phone service only, it is important for people to register their phone numbers with their local Emergency Notification Service. Go to www.911Colorado.org to find a link to your local Emergency Notification Service.
911Colorado.org, the 9-1-1Colorado Foundation, is grateful to Hunt Media Group for producing this PSA.
