Emergency Notification

In an effort to provide more reliable and effective communications with citizens, Demo County has implemented Swiftreach Networks' Swift911™ as our emergency notification system.

Swift911™ is a system designed to contact specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information. Demo County Emergency Management and other departments will use this system to alert citizens of information regarding you or your property. The system can make thousands of calls, send thousands of text messages and emails per 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 Swiftreach Network Data has been provided by a third party data provider and only includes listed phone numbers in Demo County. It is important for residents and business owners to provide contact information such as unlisted, unpublished or mobile phone numbers, email addresses and more. Accurate information in the database will help to ensure emergency information will be passed on to everyone where and how they wish to be alerted in a timely manner.

If you would like to provide an alternate number other than your home number you may also do so. The alternate phone number would be called if your primary phone number is not answered by a person or answering machine.

All calls you receive will have the caller ID of “Demo County.” Your information will not be provided to any outside agencies or companies.
