Isabella County announces a new and improved emergency notification system for Isabella County residents powered by Rave Mobile Safety called Smart911. Smart911 is a new emergency mass notification system used to contact County residents and businesses via phone messages, text messages, and/or E-mail messages in case of emergency. The Smart911 system alerts will be used by Isabella County 9-1-1 to notify residents of emergencies or critical situations and provide information regarding necessary actions, such as evacuation and shelter-in-place. If an answering machine or voicemail picks up the call, the system will leave a recorded message. If the number called is busy or does not answer, the system will redial the number in an attempt to deliver the message. The system is also TTY/TDD compatible.
The new Smart911 system will require users to register. All cellular, voice-over IP, landline numbers, and email addresses you would like to be notified at can be registered within your Alerts profile when you register with Smart911.
