Community Emergency Notification System (CENS)

During an emergency in the Maricopa County region, CENS is designed to rapidly notify the affected area of the emergency by sending a recorded message through the telephone system. CENS uses the 9-1-1 database to extract phone numbers determined by the circle or area drawn on the CENS map. CENS launches a prerecorded message to the telephone numbers in the area defined. Cell and VoIP phones are not part of the 911 database; however, the public can now register Cell or VoIP phones with the CENS system. (CENS notifications are based on the address you provide for your Cell and or VoIP phone.)

You may register your Cell or VoIP phone by visiting www.maricoparegion911.org/cens.htm.
