Understanding the RIO BLANCO ALERT Notification System

Rio Blanco County Sheriff’s Office has implemented an Emergency Notification System, a high-speed emergency/community notification solution provided by SWIFTREACH Networks to help keep residents and businesses informed with important information that may immediately impact their safety.

No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is included. All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the last year, and who use a cellular phone as their primary home phone.

The Rio Blanco Alert system is a geographical based notification system, which means street addresses are needed to select which phone numbers will receive emergency notification calls in any given situation. The system works fine for cell phones too, but we have to have a street address". People who have recently moved but kept the same listed or unlisted phone number also need to change their address in the database.
