In an effort to provide more reliable and effective communications with citizens and businesses, Hancock County has an emergency alert notification system.
The emergency notification system is designed to make phone calls or text messages to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency/disaster or for sharing important information. Hancock County Office of Emergency Management will use this system to notify citizens by phone or text of information regarding you or your property. The system can make thousands of calls and/or texts in a minute to convey vital information. These messages may include information on floods, fires, water emergencies, road closures, missing persons, evacuation orders, and weather emergencies.
The emergency notification system data has been provided by a third-party data provider and only includes listed land-line phone numbers in Hancock County. It is imperative for residents and business owners to provide contact information such as unlisted, unpublished or cell phone numbers. Accurate numbers in the database help to ensure emergency information will be passed on to everyone in a timely manner.
When signing up through the Smart 911 opt-in portal, its important to list your residential address if you live in Hancock County or your work address if you work in Hancock County and want to receive important alerts. Most alerts are sent based on geographical location.
Your information will not be provided to any outside agencies or companies.
