Mass Notification System

Calvert County ALERT

Calvert County's emergency notification system allows officials to contact Calvert County residents in the event of an emergency situation such as power outages, missing persons, weather updates, water and sewer service disruptions and gas line breaks.

The system employs mapping capability for geographic targeting of calls coupled with a high-speed telephone system capable of delivering pre-recorded messages directly to homes and businesses via telephone, cell phone, text and email messages.

In order to successfully reach residents, it is recommended that each household have a plug-in, non-portable phone in the event of power outages. In the event of extended power outages, the system is used to provide updates and broadcast emergency information such as warming center locations and mass care shelter activations.

Residents and businesses with landline telephone numbers have already been included in the system. You may use the registration link to include additional ways to contact you. All information you provide will be kept strictly confidential.

We encourage all residents of Calvert County to register to receive messages by visiting our registration web site.
