We would like to introduce the new and improved BAY Alerts emergency notification system for Bay County residents, powered by RAVE Mobile Safety. Bay County has re-implemented an emergency mass notification system that will be used to contact County residents and businesses via phone messages, text messages and/ore-mail messages in case of emergency. The system, called BAY Alerts, will be used by Bay 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. The system utilizes the telephone companies’911 database and is able to contact land-line telephone numbers, whether listed or unlisted. If the call is picked up by an answering machine or voicemail, BAY Alerts 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.
While the majority of previous users of the BAY Alerts system have been loaded into the new system, there are several NEW FEATURES that will require users to register with the system. Land-line numbers are automatically included in the system, and landline only users can be notified, via a voice message, of any major emergency in the County. All cellular, voice over IP, landline numbers and email addresses that you would like to be notified at can be registered within your BAY Alerts profile when you register.
