what we do

Warn
Central Texas

CAPCOG uses a regional notification system (RNS), WarnCentralTexas.org, as a crucial public-safety tool so local governments can warn and inform residents about natural and man-made disasters happening in their own neighborhood via text message, cellphone call or email. The web-based tool is available to users throughout the CAPCOG region. It’s an effective tool for notifying a relatively large number of people in a short period of time.

Since the program is voluntary for cellphone users, all landline phones are automatically enrolled, promotion of the program is continually ongoing and is done a regional and local level. CAPCOG regularly comes up with new promotional material
