Did you know that San Bernardino County has an Emergency Notification System Cell Phone program? If not, now you do.
In the event of an emergency, San Bernardino County Sheriff and fire departments send high-speed mass notifications via telephone and text messages. This system is known as the Telephone Emergency Notification System (TENS).
The county uses a database of landline telephone numbers, which is updated every six months, to send emergency messages to landline phones only.
By signing up ONLINE, residents can also receive emergency text messages by going to: http://www.sbcounty.gov/SBCFire/Tens/TENSContact.aspx.
