Gilpin County has upgraded the emergency notification system for our residents. The system, Hyper-Reach, is a high-speed telephone emergency notification service allowing county officials the ability to deliver pre-recorded information to either targeted areas or the entire county. The system would be implemented in situations such as a land wildfire, in which residents in the immediate area and surrounding areas would need to be notified to take appropriate steps to safeguard life and property.
Hyper-Reach has the capability of making up to 60,000 phone calls an hour and will attempt to deliver the message to each residence up to 3 times in order to maximize the number of delivered messages. It can deliver the pre-recorded message to a live person or an answering machine. The message will consist of six key elements:
- Statement that it is a Emergency message from Gilpin County Sheriff's Office
- Time and date of the call
- Scope of the emergency
- Area(s) affected by emergency
- Action that needs to be taken
- Directions for obtaining more information
While there is a database that will be accessed to initiate an emergency notification call in Gilpin County, you are being encouraged to go online and register your own personal information. By doing so you will be ensuring that the data pertaining to you and your home is as accurate as possible. You know where you live, don't let the safety of you and your home depend on data purchased from a third party. Assure your information is accurate by going online and registering. You will be asked for your name, address, primary phone number, which should be your home number, and as many other phone numbers and emails as you need to register. If you have family members you also want to be notified in case of an emergency, be sure to add their emails or phone numbers to the list you are creating. Businesses should also register. Because there are laws about calling more than one number of a business, register and assure the number you want called if an emergency is happening that could affect your business is the one that is called.
