Wayne County Emergency Management licenses notification system

The Wayne County Emergency Management has contracted with Inspiron Logistics to license its Wireless Emergency Notification System (WENS) high-speed notification system. The system dubbed “911AlertMe” provides Wayne County public safety officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or Wayne County and surrounding area.

If your phone number is not in our database, you will not be notified. One of the advantages of our new system is it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly into the system’s database. We urge all individuals and businesses to visit the Wayne County Emergency Notification System website, www.911alert.me, and follow the directions to register your phone.

Those without Internet access may call the Wayne County Emergency Management office in the Wayne County Justice Center, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to supply their information over the phone.

Required information includes: First and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code and primary phone number, additional phone numbers can be entered as well, and email contact.

All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number.

911AlertMe allows geographically based delivery, which means street addresses are required to ensure emergency notification calls are received by the proper individuals in a given situation. The system works for cell phones too, however an associated street address is needed to provide relevant messages.
