Regional Notification System Registration
CAPCOG’s Regional Notification System (RNS) uses a "reverse dialing" method to notify residents in the 10-county region of critical emergency information in situations where property or human life are in danger. It also can be used to notify residents of other events that affect them.
The system has the ability to notify land-line and cell phone users if there is an emergency near their home, business or other locations. Notifications from CAPCOG’s RNS only work in Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Llano, Travis and Williamson counties.
RNS provides enhanced notification capabilities to cell and land-line phones. The system can send automated messages for certain types of weather events such as severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, and flash floods. Cell and land-line phones can receive warnings by checking the appropriate box on the registration form.
People can register their cell number to one or more locations within the 10-county CAPCOG region, including their homes, businesses or the homes of relatives. To register multiple locations, create a separate record for each address using the same cell numbers.
If a participating local government activates the system for an area that contains a location registered to a particular cell number, the system will attempt to send the emergency message to that cell phone.
Regional notification messages are initiated by local public safety agencies as one of several methods of communicating vital information to their residents.
